Zulu Pad is a personal wiki notepad - a smart cross between a notepad and a desktop wiki!
So, what does it do? It automatically and smartly links all your notes together using hyperlinks. This is very useful in a number of different scenarios as highlighted on the product homepage:
Say for instance, you're a music major, and you're studying Bach. You've taken notes on Bach in ZuluPad, and after a long 16 weeks have finally completed the semester. Sometime after the summer break, you're taking notes on Beethoven, and your teacher mentions a way in which Beethoven was influenced by Bach. As soon as you type "Bach" into your notes, it's underlined as a hyperlink. You think to yourself, "oh yeah, I know a few things about Bach". So you click the link, and you can read all of your Bach notes. While you're reading your Bach notes, you happen to notice a link to a page about Henry Purcell, and you can refresh your memory about him, too.Another interesting feature is the free 'ZuluSync' account that will store all your notes online so that you can access it from anywhere. Nice!
Or, for instance, imagine that you're a salesman with 100+ clients. You recognize them all when you see them, but it's hard to keep their names straight. You've jotted down an appointment to meet with John Smith in ZuluPad, and "John Smith" is immediately highlighted. You click the link, and you're reminded that John hates fish, loves golf, tends to annoy you, but always orders a lot.
It is currently available for Windows and OS X and the Linux version will be released soon. I see it as a smart and convenient tool for research, note taking and GTD. Very useful.
