Good points. It reminds me a lot of Internet Explorer. It had a proprietary way of doing things in a way no one else did. But it's been popular. Now they've realised the world is bigger than one platform - the desktop - so have moved more in line with standards. The Notes Client was king, but a lot of work is now done in browsers or mobile, for business and especially mail. But we're stuck with legacy. Equally I think it will be a very long time before developers can only support older web apps on Internet Explorer 11+. Unless businesses get a real kick from employees who demand modern.

I do think a lot of companies will "get the message" and move legacy apps to the web, but it remains to be seen whether they move to IBM's web or someone else's.

humorous that the eclipse version was built to strengthen the client and mail and the browser plugin does not have email
