Tablet PC – A Student's Perspective

One Note, Note Taking and Powertoys

Goodbye Tablet PC

Posted by anirudhsaraf on July 22, 2010

After having graduated from college and getting an Ipad, my tablet has been lying abandoned in a corner. The other day I booted it up to test some Inking on the new OneNote14, only to discover that my pen had stopped working. It was then that I decided to retire my TabletPC  (and with it in all likelihood this blog)  and reformat and retrofit it as a Ubuntu Server.

I still love and use OneNote to save random tidbits of information, but lack of support on the Ipad and Linux is making me consider switching to  Evernote.  OneNote Team – can we get an Iphone/Ipad app !

As a parting gift I am releasing the source code for TreeView if anyone is interested in developing it further. I will be happy to answer questions about the code if you need help

Note: The code hasn’t been cleaned up ; was written in my sophomore/junior year in college and there are very few comments.

PS: Any emacs people interested in writing a M-x Send-To-OneNote/EverNote script ?

Update: check out my new blog (developer focused) at!

    I’d heartily encourage the jump to Evernote. There are some features from OneNote that I still really miss (like really good tables, audio recording, and inking on top of presentations), and there are a few things I still do in OneNote, but for how multi-platform and freeform Evernote is, I think you’ll really like it once you get used to it.
