Another important OneNote update
I thought you all would like to know that OneNote is now included in all Office editions! That means no matter what Office box you buy or what you company purchases OneNote will be on the disc! I remember when I first started on the team OneNote 2003 was a stand alone version of and even though we were a part of Office but wasn’t in the box. I would tell people what product I worked on and people would ask “is OneNote in standard?” or “I have pro I don’t see OneNote”. Then when we found that we were included in the Home & Student and Enterprise editions we were overjoyed and excited to be in the box. But now I can tell people that no matter what version of Office they buy they will have OneNote! I feel like we have really come along a long way from a standalone app to being a core part of the Office experience.
FYI here are the Office editions:
- Office Home and Student edition includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote.
- Office Home and Business edition replaces the previous Office Small Business edition. It includes all the programs from the Home and Student edition and adds Outlook.
- Office Standard is the entry-level enterprise edition; it includes the programs from the Home and Business edition and adds Publisher
- Office Professional continues to be the high-end package for consumers and small businesses. It includes the programs in Standard edition and adds the Access database management program.
- Office Professional Plus is the high-end enterprise offering, adding SharePoint Workspace (formerly Groove Workspace) and InfoPath.
And, as announced at the Microsoft partner conference this week, the Office Web app version of OneNote 2010 will be (freely) available to all Windows Live users.
