    We have Lotus notes here at work. And god does it suck. Makes me feel like I'm working on a program developed for windows 3.1

    On the up side it does work very well.

    Lotus 8 was a BIG step forward, but only because lotus 6.5 was %^$*.

    I think Lotus 8 was nice, but still a lot of work to do and improve on.

    And proprietary? Jeez... what do you want? Support for POP, SMTP, IMAP, LDAP? XML, DXL, HTTP? MIME, SMOM, x.509? Web services? Oh yeah.... it supports all that and probably more that I don't even know of....



    I don't pay attention to the press releases... so I don't really know what the 135 million number is, but most likely it's ACTIVE licenses..



    I'm really not trying to pick.... but it just came off to me as a really negative comment when you admit that you have no facts...



    The fact they you personally hasn't run into any of these people is not statistically relevant...



    Best Regards!



    Just curious. How many posts will you have to make before you regard yourself as no longer being a "newbie", and have to change your screen name, and start over?

    Which will suck for me, because my company refuses to turn them on.



    Jeez! That's no excuse! You know how to do it. Just slip in during the night...

    Does it suck, or does it work very well?

    You know where I work, right?



    Don't get me started on Lotus products.

    IBM have been making changes in the Mac side for a few years altering the program from 6.5, 6.5.5, 7 and now 8



    It has steadily become more Mac like since the switch to 7 and more so in 8. 7 introduced the app as a complete package etc.



    This is not as bad as it sounds. Notes is a strong product.
