You have to try out Stickies v7 beta…

Stickies (v6.7) is a FREE electronic version of “sticky notes” that you often see posted on people’s desk, computer monitors, refrigerators, etc…  I have been using Stickies on my PC (and thumb drive) to replace the accumulated paper mess that “sticky notes can lead to. Stickies is one of those programs that I personally cannot live without.  It is FREE; It is GOOD; and It is PORTABLE.

The author of Stickies, Tom Revell (Zhorn Software), recently made an announcement, via the Stickies web site forum, that a new beta version of Stickies is available for public testing (Stickies v7 beta).  Final release of Stickies v7 is expected on or around October 16th. Mr. Revell, we at What’s On My PC… applaud your work.

Folks, I have been testing the beta and it is awesome (see new features below).  Beats the Windows 7 Sticky Notes hands down.
