OneNote occupies a space at the intersection, and the culmination, of a number of interesting and important trends in personal computing software, ranging from fundamental input technologies such as text editing and handwriting recognition to highly specialized niche products such as electronic lab notebooks and electronic course books. In this chapter, you’ll explore some of what has gone before so that you have a richer appreciation for where OneNote fits into what’s to come.
