RE: Benefits of Notes client on Linux

I agree wholeheartedly with you on this analysis Paul. These are precisely the trinity that in the end differentiated Notes/Domino from every other product/platform I evaluated.

It is time we started to see that Notes/Domino is a framework (a la Struts, or WebObjects). We can let all the work that has gone into the framework (security, replication, etc) support our development. I have stood by in shock to see applications developed in other platforms that did not even consider security until the application was completed.

But it appears that IBM is too caught up in their vision of thin-clients and centralised computing to realise a) most workers don't need a portal, b) the UI provided by browsers is just too thin (even with immense efforts being spent on DHTML). Surprisingly, IBM even developed Sash for Win32 and Linux, which could have been used to develop a rich client for Linux. But the whole project was apparently just mothballed (I'm hoping that they are secretly using this technology to develop a rich client for Linux).
