It is almost two years since I have discovered an amazing org-mode. I am using it in more situations every day, so recently, I wrote a simple tray application to use org-protocol with defined org-capture templates directly from the desktop.
You may have noticed that I became a fan of solarized color palette by Ethan Schoonover used for terminal and gui applications. You will therefore not be too surprised when I describe how to install it and use in Emacs text editor.
I have discovered org-mode in the last year but have been using it for the last two months with increasing enthusiasm and commitment. I will be honest and tell you that it is the sole reason to learn and use Emacs on daily basics.
