Geany is light and full of features. (install with the vte options and you even get a terminal from within the app).
There also is xcalc, part of the xorg stock (and xedit for that matter).

I would suggest Tomboy, if it's as good (or better) then KDE's equivalent it should work fine.


I usually scribble notes into Vim after calling a setup function to prep my personalized 'outline' options since I use few plugins.

Galculator is a nice gtk calculator that doesn't require gnome libraries.

+1 here, there is a "Niki" article related to making Nedit look a tad bit more "aesthetically pleasing".

I'm kinda fond of /usr/bin/vi though, I don't always keep X11 running.. to much eye candy can't be good for your health eh?

Word processors? I would recommend the LyX. The nice Latex'ish piece of software. It suited for me almost ideally when I was (and currently I am) writing the reports and master thesis. Fast learning curve and no nightmares with formatting to name a few. Results are making the eyes happy.

Most of the ports that are part of the XFCE4 window manager are GTK2 based I believe. Their 'mousepad' app is excellent (it'll take you about as far as Windows' notepad will) and I'm sure whatever they use for a calc is handy as well.
