    Is there a good simple program for taking notes in lectures? I have word 08 but am looking for something a bit more simple and easy to connect lectures to subjects but still have everything under the same umbrella.

    there are several nice note taking apps.
    I like notebook but it is not free, journler used to be free and is now shareware. Both are great for organization you can add audio if you need, images and more very easy to use.

    and the ability to import adobe and ms word docs would be a huge plus as that is what most lec notes are distributed in

    It's an all-in-one so you can keep everything together, and put your notes in the right places

    That looks so great, but for some reason it's not working. It freezes when I try to add a new term. I'm running Leopard...

    Yeah I've had that problem. It's just cropped up after updating to 10.5.2

    I guess the developer is aware of it, and should hopefully be fixing it, although he is working hard on version 3...

    If you just drag and drop a file into the area it works :)

    OmniOutliner would probably work well for note-taking
