Negative Comment by PeresGil about Microsoft OneNote May 2012

I really would like to clean my computer of this application. I never really understood what is this for or how it works. Currently I am using Zim on windows. On the Mac VoodooPad is still better than Zim, but Zim is free and VoodooPad is Mac only. So Zim is a good option for Windows.

Do you have any link where to download ZIM?

What the hell do they mean onenote is free?
It's great but because I had to change computers often MS stole my money.

So goodby ms office I don't pay for shit 2-3x at you whim.

I miss onenote after getting my Mac. I use xinote.com and it is pretty similar to onenote in terms of interface. It is quite good for me as of now.

It is used for taking notes, sketching, collecting & sharing realtime. I tried it and now sarted storing my contents safely.

Seems pretty cool, but...

Negative Comment by Software about Microsoft OneNote Oct 2011

I'm tempted to use this in my lectures, to note-take with PDFs. Unfortunately its PDF handling is awful - it rotates all landscape PDF's 90 degrees, so everything is sideways. Unbelievably, there is no option to rotate a PDF back to normal.
This program has a lot of potential, but Microsoft ruined by messing up its PDF handling.

OneNote is arguably the best piece of software of the office suite.

Don't forget to install the PRINTOUT MANAGER plugin.

So I can't view Evernote on my phone if I am offline and I can't edit notes on my phone. It is like having a bike but can't use it in certain conditions. Pointless.

I'm a big Onenote fan and never really used Evernote. They're different though and each have their strengths and weaknesses. It depends on what you really want to do with your notes/screen clippings/URL's/documents...etc. If you want something like Onenote but free, I suggest you try Zoho Notebook. So far, it's the closest thing I've seen and it's online so accessible from many places.

Because of the very uncomplicated Web- and "Windows Mobile" Synchronisation, I prefer EverNote (2+3).
However, if somebody has very confidental data, the online synchronisation could be seen as not so optimal.
OneNote Mobile (1) cannot sync with Online Storage (neither with Live SkyDrive nor with Live Mesh), only with the Desktop PC about Active Sync or WMDC.
The greatest advantage of OneNote in my opinion is the great and unique OCR function of the OneNote Desktop version.

OCR Using Microsoft OneNote 2007
For the occasional basic OCR stuff, MS OneNote’s optical character recognition feature is a timesaver. You might have missed it…it’s called Copy Text from Picture.

i have to disagree with you, Lambda. i think linux users would be smart enough to realize they could just use google docs or google notebook or something.

You know, if M$ released this on Linux, I imagine Linux users would even pay for it.
