We drifted onto this subject recently. Here is some news from Ars Technica:

(https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/04/onenote-desktop-app-end-of-lifed-replaced-with-windows-10-uwp/#p3)

“In Office 2019 shipping later this year, that new version of OneNote [i.e., the UWP version] is moving to the foreground and will become the primary version of OneNote. The existing desktop application, OneNote 2016, will continue to be supported in maintenance mode, receiving bug fixes through October 2020 and security fixes until October 2025. But new features are going to be reserved for UWP version. . . . Clean installations of Office 2019 won’t include OneNote 2016 by default, but if it’s already there, it won’t be harmed by upgrading.”

This is a shame. For all that I could never quite get OneNote to work for me, it was a great and very useful product.

Same here. Must be me the problem, but I can not see OneNote, as anything more than a paper notebook on steroids…

And still is. It’s not going anywhere.

Among its many other virtues, OneNote is a very intuitive product, easy to use, and has nothing on its bones but the meat necessary to function. A good model for others to emulate.

PS. And it’s free.
