Love the OneNote rant John! I actually like OneNote as well, but I’m way more comfortable and vested in Evernote. I use the Premium version. Once you start throwing pretty much everything at it — files, pictures, videos, etc. — the space restrictions of the free kill you.
I recommend the free version to get started and get comfortable. Once you’re basically comfortable and committed — go all in. And start throwing everything at it. :-)
