I love to read and really love to read a good tech manual. I want to ask the book companies who contenue to print out 30 books on Linux and hundreds of books on Microsoft products, where are the books on Lotus? Why are the book companies ignoring a huge market like the Lotus product. From the Lotus 8 release alone I could think of 8 or 9 books that could be written and would love to see only no one seems interested in writting them? Can’t IBM place a few calls and get some great book written? The bulk of the Lotus books are for R5 and Version 6. Not much out there for Version 7 and very little on 8. Lotus 8 changes the face of everything and no one in the printing world is working on it. I approched 5 or so book companies about getting out a Lotus 8 book for Users and Adminsitrators, but no one and I mean no one would even consider the idea.
Anyone else out there seeing the same things? Since I missed Lotusphere this year are you guys there seeing any books? The System i books are pretty good right now, but if you want to learn Lotus you had better be ready to join the school of hard knocks.
