Here's another video of someone demonstrating what you can do with VMWare Fusion with the unity feature that allows you to just have your Windows applications like One Note running at the same time you are in OS X: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIApJMzGzDQ

And some reading material: http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/f ... tml#c25447

Hmm even I want this now. Minesweeper...

Omni Outliner is absolutely perfect for me in my note taking style. I couldn't do without it. I just keep every course in one big file and add a new entry for each class. Like someone else said the search function is amazing and the formatting and moveable text is just so much more intuitive and conducive to LS outlining than Word.

Why do you have to run bootcamp, other than possibly for exams?


That is probably it. For exams.

If you go to the Circus Pony website there are a bunch of tutorial videos you can watch, it pretty much sold me on it.

You can do a proper outline, and make the outline look exactly as you would like it to.
Just look for videos on their websites or on YouTube.

This was my experience after playing with the circus pony for the past day. Word is just cleaner, more professional, and has better output options (I have to print my outlines for review). OSX is so fluid anyway, I feel like the rapid pace of any class isn't really a problem for the typical mac user. Any huge plusses to Notebook that haven't been covered?



To be honest im just gather info right now, I'll be ordering my mac julyish when they have the free ipod and printer option for back to school like the normally do. Once i get it i will have to play around with them all. This will be my frist mac so i hope the learning curve isnt steep enough to slow me down in LS.


Whoa whoa whoa WHAT?!?!?! Free iPod and printer? Is this for real?

Note: I've been out of school for a few years, and have never owned a Mac, so I am in complete shock right now.

Yeah I posted in another thread the NoteBook site:
http://www.circusponies.com/


apparently that's really good as well


Isn't this just like the 'word notebook' project in the gallery of word for mac? any differences?

The best mac alternative to OneNote is OneNote. I run OneNote with Parallels' 'Coherence.' It works perfectly fine.

No, not at all. OneNote is just better than all of the other programs that others have suggested. I had heard something in the past about OneNote coming to Mac in the 2011 version that will be out at the end of this year. That remains to be seen, but it doesn't matter all that much to me either way. My set-up works really smoothly as is.
