Dealing with OneNote files
One of our teachers received a OneNote file (software which we don't have) and passed it to me to open. I tried using Skydrive to open it, but got a message saying the file had been created with a previous version of OneNote and wouldn't open (thanks for that Microsoft!) Anyway, we couldn't open it, so I had the teacher contact the author and ask them to export the file to .doc, something OneNotes can do. Problem solved.
Well not quite. I can see this becoming a regular issue. Does anyone know of either a OneNote viewer or a converter, preferably in the £0 price range. What do you do with OneNote files?
Bigger question. Why does OneNote exist at all? M$ already have Word, Works and RTF file formats for text documents, and no doubt others too. Do we really need yet more crappy file formats to deal with?
