Yep.  Snowy and Tomboy sync is not a stable combination yet and hence using
Gnote is really no different.  In addition to that,  GNOME hasn't hosted web
services directly before and this would be their first venture.  It seems a
bit of a experimental thing for them at this point.  I heard Tomboy sync
works well with Ubuntu One but that is a proprietary solution
