A review of Notes 8 to go along with the feature article mentioned in the prior blog entry...

Fundamentally, Lotus Notes and Domino 8 aren't about new mail and calendar features. Rather, this release is about a paradigm shift in the desktop client. Your inbox is now home base for integrating all types of business applications. A lot has already been said about the programming model, Lotus Expeditor 6.1.1, which employs eclipse.org open standards. So let's spotlight the user experience and collaboration.

Notes 8 has a clean new look, logical menus, and customizable layouts; for me, this design makes the client easier to use compared to Microsoft Outlook. Still, current Notes users should feel comfortable with the mail client, since it works much as before.  ...

Lotus Notes and Domino 8 are more compelling. The new release not only freshens up the platform with modern Web 2.0 features, but also represents a substantial shift in approach -- toward a modern services-oriented architecture. The time is right for the move.
