Get It?

Look, don’t get me wrong here: Get OneNote 2007 the very minute it’s available to you.

If you were like me and came to the party late and only recently started using OneNote 2003, it doesn’t matter. Graduate to OneNote 2007 the instant you can. Even if you were completely clueless and made the mistake of purchasing one of the stale copies of OneNote 2003 still left on your local CompUSA’s shelves just within the past month, just chalk that up to a worthwhile learning experience. OneNote 2007 would easily be worth twice what they’ll be charging you for it, so just go ahead and get the new version as soon as possible. Even if the only way you can get it immediately is to pick up the whole bag via Office 2007 Ultimate, shoot for it: the rest of it makes OneNote 2007 fly even higher, yet here’s a user who’d dole out that much for just OneNote 2007 itself if Ihad to.

Is that clear enough? Get OneNote 2007. Not the earliest possible day or hour, but rather at the earliest possible minute!

Except I almost feel like I need to put that in bold red italics at the head of every post I might make from now until formal OneNote 2007 release, because OneNote developers and beta testers laugh when they hear what I have to say next: don’t avoid OneNote 2003 in the interim. If you’re the overwhelmingly typical business user, Microsoft’s pitiful marketing of OneNote up to this point means that like me, you’ve made it to November 2006 without a clue about OneNote, with the first growing awareness being the articles pointing to the imminent release of Office 2007, and even those articles not really doing OneNote much justice. Even so, don’t wait. I don’t care if it’s as late as Thanksgiving and you have the power to armtwist your enterprise’s information services division into getting OneNote 2007 onto your hard drive as early as December 1. Even for those last few days, the productivity you gain from using OneNote 2003 even at the most elementary level will more than make up for the cost and the very little time it will take you to adapt.

So when I rave on about what OneNote 2003 has done for my work since just November 1 when I first began using it, make no mistake: I cursed missing the opportunity to beta test 2007, and I vowed quite quickly that I will be one of the first in line to get OneNote 2007, and I very emphatically advise the same for all, and am already quickly spreading that advice within my industry and to my clients and to all my family and friends. But when OneNote 2007 developers and beta testers laugh at me for not letting OneNote 2007 anticipation curb my enthusiasm for OneNote 2003 use in the meantime, I seriously have to wonder where they left their marketing mentality. I know, I know, I know, and their mirth makes me wonder if maybe I know better than they might because I’m a business person who can already use to the hilt what they shrug off: I do know that OneNote 2007 may be a thousand times more the software that OneNote 2003 has ever been. But when a business person who is one of the most respected in his business can be going around informing his contacts about the OneNote 2007 they hadn’t yet even heard about, yet at the same time be telling them that it’s no waste of their money to run with OneNote 2003 even if only for the last several weeks, how can Microsoft or any OneNote user not recognize that as anything but the most serious missed opportunity? Has there ever been any other software out there where any business user could fairly claim the same?

For the longest time since the earliest days, developers and users alike had been keeping an eye out for the next killer app. OneNote 2007 will be. To be sure, OneNote 2003 was only the most distant dream of it, yet it’s worth touching that dream, even if only for several weeks until you can have the reality.
