Adding sticky notes to the GNOME desktop

I recently wanted to write myself a reminder on a post-it, but couldn't find any on my desk.

I figured there would be some options available in the Fedora repos, so I decided to take a shot in the dark.

# yum search notepad
 ======= Matched: notepad =======
xpad.i686 : Sticky notepad for GTK+2

Thirty seconds later, I was rocking a very slick notepad on my desktop. After adjusting to disable the window decorations (right click) and finding a suitable font, this is what I got.

This here is why I'm head over heels in love with Linux. Coincidentally (and in keeping with the traditions of this blog), I also love gnocchi.
