This reminder program is about as simple and bare-bones as they come. Basically, Memento allows you to append any number of sticky notes to your desktop. The program provides a few pastel-colored templates at random, but you can't select the color yourself or change the font. The tiny notes also can't be resized to a larger view. Right-clicking the application's system-tray icon will let you view all notes at once, and you can generate a new one with a hot key. However, don't expect any extra features such as pop-up reminders or audio alarms. Folks seeking an extremely basic note-taking app for no cost might consider Memento, but it's certainly not for power users.

Memento (formerly PostIt) lets you keep notes on your desktop to remind you of information, dates, and times. It is focussed on ease of use and simplicity. Notes are automatically saved every minute (if they have changed), can be collapsed into the note title bar, and you can change the color of the notes.
