Thanks for the info James. When I get around to putting www.lotusnotesguru.net together I plan to have a section devoted to books (and I suppose e-books) that would be of interest to anyone aspiring to greater things as a Notes/Domino professional.
So anyway, my "problem" is not an inability to find books, since of course Amazon and bn.com stock many titles online. What I'm concerned about is the fostering of a perception that Notes/Domino is a "marginal" piece of software vis a vis the massive number of Oracle, SQL Server, VB, C#, and Java offerings.
Purveyors of business applications developed for the Lotus platform should NOT have to waste time overcoming this perception when approaching potential clients. Nor should they have to "hide" the fact that their cool web-based CRM or whatever app is Domino-based.
I'm especially disappointed in the IBM Lotus inability to come up with a compelling message (and a reasonably turnkey offering) to the small and medium-size business sector. In contrast, Dell is offering Microsoft's "Small Business Server" (check out http://www.microsoft.com/sbserver/default.asp
), which is really just a bundle of Win2K Server, ISS, and some other business applications. It should NOT be that hard for IBM Lotus to put an even more compelling bundle together.
