OneNote is 10

OneNote is turning 10 this month. We started with “OneNote 2003” and have made many releases since then, growing in leaps and bounds, along with our user base.

The Garage

It’s not often these days I post twice in one week, but I just loved this post about The Garage @ Microsoft. This is a community that started up about 18 months ago as a grassroots effort, initiated by my team, Office Labs, but now is self-sustaining and run by the community itself. In the…
