Nota bene 10

[This review was made on the basis of several months’ experience with late public beta versions of release 10, which have proved solid enough, although some components of the final feature set are not yet in place.]
Nota Bene (NB), generally thought of as a word processor, is actually a remarkably complete academic information management environment, with a word processor as its face. Its concept-based synonym searching also makes it a useful exploratory and preparatory text analysis tool.
Central to the platform, from that perspective, is Orbis which provides automatic indexed free form hypertext database searching of any material (notes, book length texts, field and lab reports, data sets) which has been written in or imported to NB. [more]
