Org is an Emacs mode for keeping notes, maintaining TODO lists, and doing 
project planning with a fast and effective plain-text system.

Org keeps simple things simple.  When first fired up, it should feel like a 
straightforward, easy to use outliner.  Complexity is not imposed, but a 
large amount of functionality is available when you need it.  Org is a 
toolbox and can be used in different ways, for example as:

* an outline extension with visibility cycling and structure editing
* an ASCII system and table editor for taking structured notes
* an ASCII table editor with spreadsheet-like capabilities
* a TODO list editor
* a full agenda and planner with deadlines and work scheduling
* an environment to implement David Allen's GTD system
* a basic database application
* a simple hypertext system, with HTML and LaTeX export
* a publishing tool to create a set of interlinked webpages
