To add another unsatisfying answer to the bunch, I'm almost certain that
yes, it does. Junding from the screenshots, it features a more
visual-oriented interface that should be more comfortable for
non-programmers.

For example, this view looks like something that would be hard to
replicate with what Emacs provides currently:

On the other hand, if you know what you're doing, Emacs has tools for
managing notes, cross-references, etc, that many people find sufficient.
See Org mode, for example.
