I concur I have divorced myself from all proprietary note taking apps: Notion, Evernote, . . .

I use Markdown for notes and use Github private repos to back up. Then I can use Vim to my hearts content.

I use Inkdrop for my MarkDown notes. If you set up a CouchDB instance, you have control over all of your data. I find it to be the most polished tool with sync capabilities.

I love org mode, but I don't know Emacs enough to stay productive with it. Something inevitably breaks and I realize I am spending more time messing around with Emacs than I am doing real work.

Ticktick and Onedrive(Markdown files) here.
I also love markdown for notes.
Finished notes I export to PDF or word so Onedrive handles them better.
Onenote I use from time to time for quick notes or meeting notes.

I also use different apps at times but my rule is to always export finished notes and save them in onedrive. Notes in draft are written in the app of the moment :)

Thanks for Freedcamp!
I'm using Basecamp for a job and wanted something like that for my own team, but it seems a bit overkill.
