I do (or will do) a lot of writing. I also have a lot on my reading list every day. There's a strong need for me to have a good knowledge information system and I have been struggling with Obsidian a bit. The plugins are great, but there's a few that I rely on that suck. I will protect the guilty by not naming them – I'm sure they wrote the thing and stopped once they got a viable product.
I don't (currently) have the skills or time to fix that particular problem and I am intrigued by Zettlr. The other selling point of it is the concept of organizing vaults or workbooks of markdown files. I have gone so far as to open up a relatively new Obsidian vault in Zettlr with no issue.
There's also the focus on the Zettlekasten method, which I have heard great things about, but it seems like a bunch of up front busywork.
I don't know that I have any sort of conclusions here. I've thrown a poll up on the fedi from my account on hackers.town. Feel free to chime in there: https://hackers.town/@otto/109246432799427389
