- How does OM compare to other products (like evernote, emacs org-mode, hypercard or LiveCode, xanadu, mind maps, cellular automata ...
- OM is Free and open, with a highly efficient UI, and has unique features and plans.
- My criteria for an acceptable system (I.e., answers to "why not use product X instead?", or required features)
- Lotus Agenda looks *very* interesting but OM adds a structure & vision, geared to a complete way for mankind to organize knowledge, collectively AND personally.
- evernote has conceptual overlap with OM, but OM is Free & to be *computable*. Also, you decide where to save your data, what to share or import, etc.
- emacs org-mode and taskwarrior both look very powerful, flexible, and useful; OM has a different long-term vision for managing knowledge.
- xanadu seems to want to be a better "multimedia web" (ok as far as that goes):
- hypercard (like livecode) is like cool RAD + database in one: sounds like a really great tool.
- Transpose.com seems to be clever and interesting, with many features. I don't know their internals but it seems to be cloud-only, & not Free with code.
- OM doesn't focus on documents, but on traverseable knowledge at an atomic level, so it can be then built into a global complete and representative system
- OM is able to handle immense complexity w/o distress
- OM's design is to be *computable* (ie, data can be more & less structured than w/ hypercard, model grows as you use it, and when semi-structured, computable.
- OM lacks some features that are planned for the future. Click for more about current limitations:
- What are still other things others use (usually who don't know about OneModel or have different criteria)?
- Vision and plans: much more
