OneNote joins the Microsoft Office family in 2003
Bill Gates announced the new Microsoft OneNote office application in his keynote on Comdex Fall 2002, which is expected to appear in mid-2003. With OneNote, users, if it were up to Microsoft, will be able to capture, organize and process notes more efficiently.
OneNote is based on the tools and functions of Microsoft Office and will make the way users take notes - often the first step in creating a document - much more efficient.
A recent study by Microsoft Research found that 91 Percent of office users take notes regularly. 26 percent of them transfer these handwritten notes in e-mails, 23 percent often cannot find this information anymore and 36 percent would advocate a better system for their note collection.
In theory, it all sounds nice and good, but actually the text editor and a Todo.txt on the desktop do it. We are looking forward to the implementation by Microsoft.
