    Need help choosing Journal sofware!!!


    Hi all,
    Not sure if I am posting in the right place. Apologies if I am not.

    Anyway, as well as being a computer dabbler, I am also a writer, and since switching from Windows, I have been using Lifeograph, which is a neat little program.

    However, my needs are such now, that I am in need of something portable and cross-platform capable, for a whole bunch of reasons.

    Basically, I need something that does the job of Lifeograph, or David RM's The Journal, but it needs to be useable from a USB stick in both Windows and Linux.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?? I would be most grateful. I know it seems I want the moon on a stick, but i have my reasons. It does not have to be free/open source either. I am happy to pay, so long as it does the job.

    Thank you all.

    I'm unable to recommend anything specific, but you could take a look around at these two sites to see if there might be something you'd like to try:

    Linux App Finder | Helping find the Linux apps you need

    The table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux

    As you may know, it's generally best to install any software that you are interested in using the default package tool for your distribution rather than installing from source, if possible.

    In the interim, maybe some of the others here will step in with some specific recommendations for you.
