lost..need help choosing GTD software

I am very new to the GTD method (using it for about 4 days), and I am having trouble trying to determine the best software for me to use. I almost always have access to my computer, and I have terrible handwriting, so I would like to get it working the best I can.

I tried outlook, but it seems clunky

I started out using MLO, and although it is well designed and nice, it doesn't seem to work right all the time. (things don't always show up in the todo lists). Also, it seems odd that I should have to type "call spock about trebles " as an action in a project, and then also manually put it in the "@calls" list. I think that the @context lists should fill up by themselves.

I do like the tree-branching setup of MLO.

Are there other similar software?

And what exactly does kinkless mean? I see that term a lot, but I don't have a mac to fully understand what that means.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
