OneNote, OneNote, OneNote! It is exactly what you want, but awesomer.
It supports regular typing, inking if you have a tablet, and voice recording. It’ll sync up the voice recording with your typing/inking, so that you can hear what was being said when you took a too-terse note.
It syncs up via a shared drive such that you can share it between multiple computers, and both can have it open and editing at the same time with no locking issues. (It can also use Sharepoint transparently, if you have that, which you probably don’t.)
You can copy and paste anything into it – documents, pictures, screen clippings – and it’ll OCR pictures for search indexing purposes.
It allows for freeform notes, drawings, or whatever. It makes it easy to make tables (just hit tab to create a new cell while typing), lists (put in numbers or * and it’ll do the Word-style thing), and you can create tasks that sync up to Outlook. You can encrypt pages, if you want to store passwords or sensitive information. You can rearrange your notes into new pages/tabs/workbooks easily. You can do simple calculations by just typing them and hitting space after the equals sign.
I think it’s the single best program Microsoft makes.
