It is so amazing I actually paid my $19.95 for it on its special promo reduced from $69.xx.
It is easily worth the promo price, in fact a steal.
What is different is that anything you want to save including url internet addresses will be saved and you can click on them and go to the site. Much more.
What is it called? Evernote! The paid version also comes with a screen clipper so you can also cut a section out of any screen and save it.
Check it out if it sounds like it may be useful to you.

If you’re not confused enough by all the versions of Vista, the upgrade choices might just do it. I predict Home Premium will prove to be far and away the best seller (for home users). Home Basic has too many features stripped out, it may become just as maligned as Windows ME. Ultimate is too expensive, unless you have the need to connect to a domain or are an enthusiast that just have to have every feature (like me).
So, you’ve decide you’re going to purchase Windows Vista Home Premium. Wait! You’re not done. Do you want the full-retail version, the upgrade version, or the OEM version? The obvious difference is price. Most places are selling the full retail version for about $230, the upgrade for about $150 and OEM for $120. So, just what is the difference?
Full Versions can be installed on any system, whether it’s a new system you just built with no operating system, or a system with any previous version of Windows installed, or any other operating system. You can also upgrade or change that system and reactive Windows as many times as you would like. Includes both 32 and 64 bit versions (to be installed on one PC).
Upgrade Versions must have Windows XP already installed on your hard drive of the system that you plan to install the upgrade on. Windows 2000 is also eligible for the upgrade (although a clean install must be performed), earlier version are not. Windows XP only required that you possessed the media from an earlier version (a CD for example). The new requirement with Vista is that the earlier operating system must be installed on the hard drive you’re upgrading. After Vista is activated, the XP key that was upgraded becomes invalid. You can’t use that key to install XP on another system, or in a dual-boot configuration. For example, say you purchased the upgrade edition to install on a new system. You must first install and activate XP, and then use the Vista DVD to upgrade. After which you can’t use the XP key again. Both 32 and 64-bit versions are included (to be used on one system). Link to: Upgrade Matrix
OEM Versions are intended to be sold to Original Equipment Manufacturers. There is no phone support from Miscrosoft provided, no retail packaging, and no manual provided. Support is supposed to be come from the system builder. An OEM version will allow either an upgrade or a clean install. You must chose 32 or 64-bit verisons, they are not both included like they are with the retail vesions. Finally, OEM licenses can’t be transfered to another system. You can’t transfer from an old computer to a new one. If you upgrade your system, you’re limited as to what you can change, and how many activations you’re allowed.
If you choose to purchase an upgrade version of Windows Vista to upgrade XP, you will no longer be able to use that version of XP. Either on another system, or as a dual-boot option. The key will be invalidated, preventing activation.
From Vista’s EULA found here (PDF) :
13. UPGRADES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligiblefor the upgrade. Upon upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software you upgraded from. After you upgrade, you may no longer use the software you upgraded from.
For many people this may not be a problem, but it’s a change from earlier versions of Windows.
Update: Workaround posted here!

“Per Microsoft’s new licensing requirements for Vista, users are required to install a Windows Vista Upgrade from within Windows XP. When this occurs, the Windows XP license is forfeited and the Windows Vista installation process can take place. Now, however, this workaround allows users to perform a “clean install.” The process is a bit tedious, but is not hard are all to complete. Users have to perform these simple steps to perform a clean install of Vista without a previous version of Windows installed with an upgrade DVD:
1. Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD and start the setup program.
2. When prompted to enter your product key, DO NOT enter it. Click “Next” and proceed with setup. This will install Windows Vista as a 30-day trial.
3. When prompted, select the edition of Vista which you have purchased and continue with setup.
4. Once setup has been completed and you have been brought to the desktop for the first time, run the install program from within Windows Vista.
5. This time, type in your product key when prompted.
6. When asked whether to perform an Upgrade or Custom (advanced) install, choose Custom (advanced) to perform a clean install of Vista. Yes, this means that you will have to install Vista for a second time.
7. Once setup has completed for the second time, you should be able to activate Windows Vista normally. You can also delete the Windows.old directory which contains information from the first Vista install.”
