Lotusphere is next week, and while this is the System i blog, and I know Lotus is not a System i only application it’s still pretty relevant. The System i and Lotus Domino are just great together. Like Chocolate & Peanut Butter . . . If you into that kind of thing.
Lets get started. This will be my first time making any kind of prediction on this blog so lets get started.
- Lotus Notes will get an installer in .DEB format for Ubuntu (50% Sure)
- The iPhone will get some attention from Lotus (90% Sure)
- Lotus Notes/Domino 8.0.1 will be released. (100% Sure)
- Lotus Notes for Mac will arrive (80% Sure)
- Lotus Domino will now run on Ubuntu and be supported (Pipe Dream -10% Sure)
- Lotus Domino will not run on MacOSX Server (Pipe Dream – 1% Sure)
- Lotus renames all of it products just to mix it up a bit (Funny – 99% Sure)
- Lotus drops the Domino Designer Tool and pushes Eclipse (50% Sure)
- Lotus spins back off into it’s own company ( 1% sure)
- Lotus re-releases Lotus Office Suite for Free and it works great (50% sure)
So there they are. Some are funny and others a bit of me dreaming. I am going to see maybe 3 -4 come true the rest we can all think about for the rest for the year.
