    I'm sure all (most) of you have heard of it but how many people use it ?

    I've found it to be a very handy app to have on the desktop. Now that I'm studying too it's very useful for making/filing revision notes.

    There's a 60 day trial at the link above so if you've not seen it - give it a go !

    To be honest, I don't use it. I may give it a go and see what it's like. Thanks.

    I use it at work all the time. I tend to forget things if I don't right them down and having posted notes all over my desks makes it worse so with one note its a great help.

    I use it and I love it.

    It's a whole new desktop thing, doodle, copy and paste, post-it notes, sync with mobile device.
    Lovely.

    I had it with my Action Pack, but I never used it. If I were a college student again, taking notes with lits of pictures in them like I had in Chemistry, it'd be absolutely fantastic.

    soundslike a useful tool, there was a chat about an open source note taker a while ago on here, but I dont think that could incude images and things. Might have to download that from technet and see what its like.

    I use it on my laptop in commitee meetings and freelance project meetings. Makes keeping track of everything so much easier.

    It's the one reason I will probably drop a few on a slate type tablet at some point, one note is awesome! :)
    I dont use it as much withotu a tablet, just because im a scribbler, and note paper is easier for that, but i hate having to try and digitize all my stuff after the fact :)

    I use it quite a bit at home. I think it's one of the most useful pieces of software that MS has produced.:twisted:

    I'm in the 'paper and pen' group as opposed to using one-note.

    theres also an open source package called keynote that seems similar, although I have not extensively tested both yet so cant really say if one is better than the other, but those of us without 2 pennies to rub together might find keynote ok.

    why does so much open source stuff still look like it belongs on windows 95? seriously it cant be that hard to make a decent interface, hell even i can do that (im **** at writing the code behind it though lol) :)

    very true, I think the word your looking for is retro. still if people dont have a technet account and cant justify the outlay then its an option!?
