On Office Pro Plus (2016 or O365), OneNote’s integration with Outlook and other Office applications is really very useful.  It passes muster of corporate and government security assessments, and it works well with groups.  That’s where I use it mainly, and I think the business environment is a good target environment.  Otherwise, even though I use OneNote professionally I would never consider it helpful for personal use or research.

I never really stuck with Onenote. I used to love it when I used windows but It is slow and buggy on the Mac. Sync is really slow.

Lost opportunity is the best summary of OneNote (and I used it for over 10 years). Time to move on.

Very good news ! Different concept altogether, though Ink is also supported, as a document type in the HTML pane.

v108, to be released in a few days, brings up quite a few usability improvements, so outliners will feel more at home. Details to come

I hate to be unduly cynical, but I think that the only stable providers of this kind of software are those who either (1) charge enough for it (e.g., Evernote), or (2) can monetize it by targeting adds based on your content (e.g., Google). Microsoft didn’t seem to be either—maybe it was a defensive offering to try and keep people from adopting Google for more products? I guess Apple Notes could fit into that lane too, although it has users essentially captive in other ways.
