    Microsoft delivers free OneNote for Mac and Windows


    A week ago, word leaked that Microsoft was preparing to release free versions of OneNote for Mac and for the Windows desktop. On March 17, Microsoft delivered both versions of its electronic note-taking and organizational application.

    Microsoft is broadening OneNote's platform support so as to better compete with rivals, especially Evernote, on the note-taking/organizational front.

    OneNote for Mac is available for download from the Mac App Store as of today. It's the first time OneNote has been available for the Mac. Previously, OneNote was available for Windows, Windows 8, Windows Phone, iPad, iPhone, Android tablets, Android phones and the Web (OneNote Online, formerly known as OneNote Web App).

    A free version of OneNote for the Windows desktop also is available for download from OneNote.com as of today. Previously, Microsoft made free versions of OneNote available for Windows 8, Windows Phone and the Web. But until today, users of older versions of Windows had to pay for the OneNote app as part of Microsoft's Office suite

    There was a free OneNote previously available within the Windows Store.

    I think the new thing is the Desktop Windows version (and a version for Macs).

    OneNote for Mac was such a necessity for me. I always hated dual-booting my Mac to Windows in order to use it but now I don't have to. Thank you Microsoft.

    man, I should have not even bothered with this, it was an ordeal just to get the thing downloaded having to go through this password and MS account stuff, I use Office 2003 Pro and not 2013, and I don't have a "smartfone" I just recently broke down and got a "dumb" LG840g trackfone, so I don't see much use for this at all, I don't even know how to use this thing..

    Anyway I didn't want to just stop the process and end up hosing my system, so its installed, for what ever its worth. hy it was free, smirks.

    OneNote is really underrated.
