Baffles me the choices Microsoft made, they force a tablet UI on our desktops.
I, foolishly, had a go with one of beta versions of Win 8 - and the Forums were scathing about its design etc. Unsurprisingly it seems MS ignored all the comments on the Forums !

I too, love onenote, though to be honest I tend not to use it any more, in favour of Scrivener - moving between laptop and PC - but onenote does allow sync.....

Like many things in life, one learns to adjust to the idiosyncracies of software design, but Win8 is a step too far.

Mind, XP was good, Vista not, Win7 good, Win 8 not - so maybe Win 9? (Noticed my local Infirmary still uses XP Professional!)
