    Has anyone used a Wacom tablet to annotate PDFs or otherwise take notes? How has this worked out?

    Jarnal perhaps?

    Jarnal perhaps?
    "After many hours of search in the internet I came across Jarnal It is a free application for Windows, Mac and Linux. I am totally happy with it. It is pretty handy to work with and the result is great. There is a Wiki page and tutorial which are helpful (you can find the links in the homepage). Make sure to watch this video if you work with Windows 7"

    I do, but I use Bluebeam's PDF Revu for annotation which is only available for Windows. I use OneNote for all my handwritten notes. My notes are synced in the cloud and they are also searchable as OneNote's OCR feature is remarkably good.

    I used to do all of this using Parallels under OS X, but I eventually switched to Windows entirely when I became convinced that it was stable enough.

    Wacom Cintiqs, with the possible exception of the new 13HD, have a very irritating anti-reflective coating which can make text look slightly blurred. Some people can't get used to this.
