Things what IBM Lotus should really focus on



After evaluating the Notes/Domino 8.0.1 release, I found a few things which should be really fixed and done before doing anything else:- Domino 8.0.1 64-bit support for NSFDB2. Currently it destroys DB/2 databases and permanently destroys the DB/2 interface too, so it has to be reinstalled for Domino 8.0.1 32-bit.- Symbian support for Notes Traveller. Nobody really uses Windows Mobile devices (vanishing 12%), the vast majority on earth uses Symbian devices (65% market share).- Symbian support for Domino Web Access Lite (or even Domino Web Access Full). Currenty neither works with any business phone: Nokia Communicator 9210, 9300, 9500, E90.- Native Basic All Client for Linux: Lotus Notes, Domino Designer, Domino Administrator. Currently only Notes Standard Client works on Linux, and even there the implementation of Eclipse is horribly slow.IBM has a clear business case here: Basic All Client for Linux reduces the Total Cost of Ownership even 3 times:1) Basic Clients vs Standard Clients hardware needs2) Linux and it's applications hardware needs3) License fees for Windows (and also the cost for solving problems caused by Windows).
