The quest for the perfect notetaking tool

I’m always looking for a cross platform good value note taking solution and the latest find in this space is Zim – a desktop wiki

Zim is a notepad like desktop application that is inspired by the way people use wikis.

I have the following requirements:

  1. Cross platform native client (not web)
  2. Supports images (copy paste and by upload)
  3. Capture webpages or supports pasting in part of webpages, that can be updated (not just a study tool)
  4. Rich text that can be exported in usable formats.
  5. Linking between notes.
  6. Fast full-text search
  7. Some form of organisation / tagging.

So far I have excluded EverNote (too expensive), OneNote and Apple Notes (no cross platform native clients) and markdown files (no images).
