All notes are synced to the cloud, specifically the OneDrive account, and they can be arranged in so many ways, making it much more complex than Google Keep, for example. If you do not want to install the OneNote for free application wherever you need it (on your PC, smartphone, laptop, tablet) you can use the online version, on Office.com where, by the way, you have all the Office suite available free of charge.
Moreover, the company has launched a new API for OneNote, hoping to be more attractive in the eyes of developers.
OneNote for Free, one of the changes in Microsoft
OneNote for free is not the only change Microsoft has announced. Since 2011, Microsoft has not tampered with the Office the Mac. It’s time for that to change. Sources have reported that in 2014, Mac Office users will receive a very important update, long overdue. At this time, Microsoft has one development team dedicated to each operating system, including OS X, Mac users receiving the update sometime in the spring. According to statements made by a Microsoft representative, the next Office update for Mac should come at no additional cost.
And the news keep coming. The old Windows XP is retiring after 12 years, a huge age for an operating system. On April 8th, Microsoft will stop offering support for it, encouraging user to switch to Windows 8 or 8.1, more user friendly, as they have been adapted to touch screen devices.
Windows XP is a kind of king of operating systems and there are many users who have grown attached to it, even after 12 years from its release. Users have been happy with it and don’t felt the need to replace it with something else. For those who are devoted to XP, changing the operating system can be viewed with reluctance. However, you risk if you do not chose a newer version, especially in terms of security. Developers predict a big number of security attacks on 8th and 9th of April. Basically, those who stick to XP after April 8th are on their own. Not to mention the fact that of you buy a new device for your computer, like a printer, there is a good chance you won’t find the drivers for it. A complete waste!
Do you still use Windows XP?
