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!

You may want to reconsider the phrase "All Systems", since I don't see any Linux version.

How do I get it for Ubuntu?

@duykbui1989 - That was a muck-up on my part there, so thanks for pointing it out. ^_^ I will get to work on fixing that...
@jim1hurley - Unfortunately there is no version available for Linux systems. I am getting ready to amend the article to reflect that...

I would recommend Wiznote, a freemium note-taking app with cloud sync feature which is literally available for ALL SYSTEMS.

Please, if I did download and install this, though, would it overwrite my Microsoft OneNote application in Office 2010?
I'd much prefer to install it alongside, if this is possible.
Thank you very much in advance!

@Elyzsabeth_Ahne - I imagine that it would likely overwrite the 2010 edition. I have Office 2010 on my desktop and skipped installing this version of OneNote on it just in case.
But I have been adding it to all the laptops my family has though...

There is no version available for desktop Linux.
And, therefore, there is no reason for me to switch back. I already had OneNote for the iPhone and the desktop, but when I switched to Linux, I exported out all of my notes and imported them into Evernote. Using NixNote, I can work just as effectively on Ubuntu, and I actually think it is more seamless except for the occasional sync lag.
