OneNote rocks

I don't know if you have ever used Microsoft OneNote--it's still kind of a secret--but I recommend it to those who like to keep their meeting and other notes in electronic form.

It's a great way to keep your notes organized, instead of having to manage dozens of Word docs. But then it's easy to create Word docs (or PDFs) or email from your notes to send out to colleagues.

It also integrates with other Office applications, especially in Office 2007 where it links nicely to Outlook.

You can get a free trial of the new OneNote 2007 here.

I have been using OneNote for over a year now and upgraded to OneNote 2007 during the beta. It's been very helpful and has kept me more organized! I'm excited to finally get a tablet PC so I can use the writing and drawing features!

I use OneNote on my T60 at work. We bought an X60t for home where my wife gets to play with it.

I googled "Onenote Rocks" on Google, because it does! And you're absolutely right--this software is really, really useful. I love the print to Endnote feature in Endnote 2007--you can print and it saves an image, but it does OCR so you can search text in images. And the searching works really well. I think this and Excel are the two programs that MSFT really got right.
