    Whaaaat! There is no excuse for people not to use this wicked app now.

    I read on article you linked that there will still be a paid business version. But will there be any difference between this freebie and the version embedded in the Office Suites?

    I wonder what their motivation is to provide it free and cross platform. Not complaining of course I just can't see what is in it for them.

    But if they get no revenue from it, why fend them off? I think they must be thinking it will indirectly lead to revenue somewhere. I'm just wondering where. Skydrive maybe? Particularly if they make it easier to add attachments. PDF inserts and images are what have ballooned my notebooks.

    Well the new "OneNote clipper" saves web pages as images, and the new "Office Lens" lets you 'scan' documents by taking photos of them saved directly to OneNote.

    It drives more activity to their Cloud Services as OneNote defaults to OneDrive...also it will drive Office Licenses as they'll want to use the rest of the suite (Send To, etc.)

    Yea, those things make sense... and just to be clear I'm not looking for anything evil here. Making money is perfectly legitimate in my eyes =P

    I'm just glad I can finally have 2013 on my work PC without having to use one of my personal Office licenses. :D (Running 2010 still here).
