Arno in Austria complains about Notes (updated)

A blogger named Arnorants about how he doesn't like the usability of Lotus Notes:Sowhen talking about Lotus Notes (the client only, as this is all I knowabout), I will not lose my temper. I will not raise my voice. I will quietlycontinue voting on the "Software Tools of Dirt"-Page (in German)each time it crashes, and launch my little KillNotes.exe so I can restartit without having to reboot. I will let others do the cursing and complaining(Interface Hall of Shame or I hate Notes come to my mind), and will onlytalk about some experiences I went through just the last couple of days.Arno,just an FYI, your screen shots are from Notes R5t-decoration:line-through">,which shipped in 1999.  Update:Alan Lepofsky notes that the screen shot actually looks like NotesR4.5, which shipped in December, 1996.  Seethis page on developerWorksfor what appears to be confirmation. I would happily offer to have a demonstration of Notes 7, which shippedtwo months ago, set up for you, but your blog does not allow comments anddoes not have any contact information.  Anyone know Arno?
