...or ND8 as we prefer to call it, was released last Friday. I've been trying it out for some time now, and I must say that it looks great. I am looking forward to go deeper into the designer client as soon as I get some time.
I have already looked at two parts:
- composite applications
- productivity tools
And I am very happy that Lotus Notes now comes with productivity tools and support for ODF (open document format).
Some day I hope to be able to ask IBM a few questions:
- When can we expect Lotus Notes rich text to be native stored as ODF ?
- Is it possible to import ODF documents into a Notes rich text field ?
- Why wont IBM Lotus say, that productivity tools is actually a clone/fork of OpenOffice.org ?
Please see my blogpost here
- When can expect IBM staff to use their own applications at work, e.g. product presentations and text documents ?
I'm tired of seeing IBM staff do presentations with an application like You-know-who Powerpoint. When are you ready to take your own medicine ?
