A nice little write-up on the impact Eclipse is having on one of the most widely used applications in the IT world (Lotus Notes).
Thanks to Eclipse, IBM was able to produce the Linux version of Notes in just one year–and nearly a year ahead of its original projections.
Even if the following statement may be true; I do not think it will be long before Notes gains its momentum further once Sametime 7.5 and Hannover hit the streets. As he states the business is growing!
The Lotus business has been growing robustly recently, but analysts I talk to believe Outlook and Exchange have more momentum.
Like I have stated, I have been running Notes and WMC on Linux for quite some time now and it is not bad at all.
