There was a lot of discussions about IBM introducing Lotus Symphony (again). It does make if you look at it from the Eclipse point of view and the integration strategy with Lotus Notes 8. And it is definitly a good initiative by IBM supporting the ODF file format and presenting an alternative solution for MS Office. But still I wonder who else should choose Lotus Symphony over OpenOffice but the Lotus Notes 8 shops – and there are not much yet that rooled out the Eclipse based new Notes version.
Hopefully this experiment will not end like the one 22 years ago:
