    But the problem is microsoft seems to put more and more effort to develop the non-desktop version, maybe some days later we won't be able to see any desktop version of onenote. I hope this will never happen.

    We know the Office Gemini is the next major rev which is the Modern UI Touch Friendly version of Office. Microsoft needs to move its customer base to Office365, they've achieved HIPPA Compliance Certification, FIPS (using Office365 Federal) and most of the EU Certifications for security.

    I really don't think that we'll see desktop Office (any Office program) get the shaft personally. There are still plenty of reasons to want Office, including OneNote on the desktop, heck if OneNote desktop was getting the shaft, I doubt they would make it free in order to try to tie customers into Office desktop.

    You can install 2013 and keep the other version alongside it as well. I've done a dual Office 2010/2013 install config in the past and it worked pretty decently.

    I have a question for those using the free version by the way (I got a 365 sub), can you set the notebook file to be stored locally through OneDrive settings even on the free version? I mean, you have to use OneDrive, sure, but OneDrive (seriously, I want to call this thing SkyDrive) allows you to specify files to be stored locally too. Just wondering if that was possible.

    I think the paid app has no ads. IMO

    You can get a Yahoo account, use it one time to login and then close it.
