Andy Updegrove had an interview with Ken Bisconti
which focused on the ODF-compliant productivity editors which are already in the IBM Workplace Managed Client V2.6 and will soon be in Hannover (which Mr. Bisconti referred to as "Lotus Notes 8", confirming recent posts to that effect). I was interested in the way Mr. Bisconti focused on the "on-demand" nature of the editors as a key differentiator. I was also intrigued that the editors are not fully ODF compliant in the WMC 2.6, but are planned to be in Hannover in "Spring 2007". I just hope that the "on-demand" nature is preserved in Hannover, as I am less sure how that will be achieved in the Notes model, and it seems fairly key to the value proposition.
