RightNote on sale for 50% regular price. RightNote Professional – $29.97

RightNote includes different types of notes to store different types of information. There’s a word processing note for textual information, a spreadsheet note for accounting info or any type of list, a source code note for source code snippets, and a webpage note to save webpages for future reference and offline viewing . All your notes are stored in a hierarchical tree outline and can easily be moved around and re-organized at a later point. Folder notes and the unique folder tree allow you to view your outline at a higher level and make even large trees manageable.

I’ve been waiting for RightNote to go on sale and today is the day. Yes, I do indeed have OneNote and I even have AllMyNotes, so why would I want RightNote? I use AllMyNotes while in the office to handle customer issues. I use OneNote like a Wikipedia to store all my issues and resolutions. I use OneNote at home to write blog articles and organize what I want to write next. I want to get RightNote since it’ll look and work the same as OneNote, but the footprint will be significantly smaller for working on a laptop. OneNote is a great tool, but the cost is getting pretty high and in most cases you can’t get OneNote on it’s own, it comes as a bundle.

To get the complete version for $30 is a damn good deal. If you do a lot of writing or you work with technical issues and need to write down tons of research, you need to get these sorts of tools.

Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013 – 50% Off

 

I’ve been working with Kingsoft Office for a couple of weeks now and haven’t found any weaknesses. For my needs it’s every bit as good as Microsoft Office for a fraction of the cost. MS Office is grossly overpriced and absolutely bloated when it comes to hard drive size. Kingsoft Office is tiny in comparison, but works just the same. It has all the formatting, spelling, formulas, tables, sheets and just about everything else the standard user will need from Office. I have no problem making documents and spreadsheets. Quite frankly, it’s really hard to tell it’s not Microsoft Office.

With that in mind you can buy the full version of Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013 for a mere $35. Microsoft Office will cost you $399. The Professional version allows you to save in the full Office 2010 .DOCX format. If you need it, the Professional version also supports VBA macros for Automation. To be honest, this version of Office is pretty damn awesome and is an absolute steal at $35. I’ve provided links to the full version that work for a full year so you can try out all the features. Now’s your chance to buy your own version that won’t expire. But, Kingsoft has two models for selling their Office Suite. You can buy the package and it’s yours for as long as you like, or you can go for their subscription model. There’s even a discount for that.

If you haven’t tried it, Kingsoft Office is perhaps the best Office replacement I’ve seen. OpenOffice and LibreOffice are great products, but I think Kingsoft is actually better.

OneNote in a plain brown wrapper

Well, they look generic as can be, but the discs are real and the CD key is included. Here we have my two new copies of OneNote 2007, the pair of them for less than $20. They certainly have the Microsoft hologram from the time period and even the warning of not to make illegal copies of the CD. These are cast off CDs for sure, meaning they were part of a bundle that no longer exists so they’re being sold off. I’m fine with that. It’s been enough years that I don’t believe anyone cares anymore.

Need a cheap copy of OneNote 2007? eBay looks to be the answer.
