00:35:44 06/26/2021. I (Apollia) have been happily using NoteCase since 2011, around when I first started using [Puppy Linux](https://puppylinux.com/). Many breeds of Puppy Linux had (and probably still have) NoteCase installed by default.
In 2017, I started to use [my modified version of VUE: Visual Understanding Environment](https://apollia.org/gitlist/VUE---Modified-by-Apollia.git) for most of my notes. But even now, for some things, NoteCase is still better, like storing large chunks of copy-and-pasted text which VUE can't (yet) automatically wordwrap.
On computers with too little RAM to safely run every program I'd like to run at the same time, I still rely on NoteCase much more than VUE.
The starting point of this Git repo was NoteCase v1.9.8, from the tarchive "notecase-1.9.8_src.tar.gz" downloaded from here:

Easiest wayt o install the program on Windows is to use installer version. Just run the installer,
and this version will setup everything for you (inlcuign the GTK installation).
When installing from Windows binary archive, just unpack the archive contents and start the program.
This version requires GTK toolkit installation (available at <http://gladewin32.sourceforge.net/>).
If you wish to compile the sources yourself download and install latest development package. If not,
you'll need only runtime GTK package version.
Portable version of Notecase must be started through the "notecaselauncher.exe" file.

for your distro (or some similar distro) and install it either by double-clicking the package in GUI,
or using the commands of your package manager tool (rpm, dpkg or similar).
If the build is an ordinary .tar.gz archive, just unpack this archive to the "/" directory.
