I am diving in, and have journals, assets and pages indexed from Logseq into Devonthink3 (as I have a similar setup for Obsidian) and definitely find Logseq more compatible with my outlining habits acquired over the years. I have added a few plugins (agenda, tabs, tags, bullet threading) and these add just enough extra to make me feel like I can do what needs to be done here. I doubt I would have made this effort without the timely encouragement from TFTHacker's post.
Comparing Logseq and Obsidian to Notion, things I miss:
Ease of Table use - Logseq has Luckysheet (great, but I don't know how to integrate it). Obsidian has MD table editors and I saw a plugin for Notion-like tables, but hadn't used it for now.
Columns for text - In Logseq I could only do this by kanbans. In Obsidian a plugin made it a "view" feature, not really 2 separate text columns as in Notion.
Both are very into queries for requesting and visualizing data, I suppose, and I'm still starting to learn it. I got kinda lost with the abundance of Obsidian's plugins. This gave Logseq an easier learning curve for me. But Obsidian sure appears to have more features, a bigger community and growth.
The reason I'm using Logseq is its built-in PDF handling, with its linked annotations and reading. Obsidian has an Annotation plugin which I couldn't use, and its other option for annotation is a paid feature in a plugin.
Of course I may be missing a lot. But so far so good, compared to when I didn't use any of them.
