spread the buzz
Aside the subject you may have noticed that my posts are no longer Domino development related, though most of them are Domino related somehow. I am known in the department as 'the lotus guy', any question Lotus related comes to me, I wonder why :)
My learning focus is targeted around the Portal, DB2, learning how to become a true IT Architect (a subject I will write a different topic, I see too many CV's claiming to be either Software Architect or IT Architect ... doh !).
I am also catching up and improving my *nix skills, at some time in the past I used to manage it pretty well (enough I could handle my Domino *nix tasks), past 4 years I seem to have forgotten quite a bit.
All in all, following weeks I will share some of the stuff one can find useful, from my new experiences.
Coming back to the subject, try Lotus Symphony and see if you like it. Personally I think there's room for improvement, the only reason for Symphony that I am aware of is that you can open SmartSuite documents, which you obviously cannot do with OpenOffice. I prefer OpenOffice and I am trying to make it the my default office editor, specially because of the speed. Loads a lot faster than Symphony and it's the latest version, which you'd think it's the best. Not always, still this is the common perception. Mine too, in this area ...
