OneNote is a wonderful app for taking notes, maintaining lists, and more, but had to be purchased before adding it to your favorite computer, and was not available for Mac. But no longer! As of yesterday, Microsoft has made OneNote free for all Windows 7 and 8.x systems plus offered up a new version just for Mac OSX systems!
Important Note: There is no version available for desktop Linux.
The Windows installer is a ‘dropper’ file approximately 1 MB in size and will download the needed files to install OneNote on your computer. The file for the Mac version of OneNote is 235 MB in size.
