Full marks to IBM Lotus

A nice postingon the developerWorks:Lotus Notes/Domino 6/7 forum...Wewere due to start work on a release for R7 early next quarter, so I decidedto have a "first look" at what the work would entail. After downloadingand installing R7 - a process which went absolutely seamlessly - I droppedour code into a fresh R7 database constructed from the standard mail template,made the (very few) necessary changes as documented for R6, and let itrun. It works! Not one line of code had to be modified, not one glitch,not one bug! We work in paralel with an Outlook project that does exactly the same thing.They have a team of many programmers, designers, QA, testers etc etc, andthey've never achieved a successful upgrade (on-time, inside budget) yet.Here I am, on my own, with a major new Notes release, and I'm ready monthsin advance, and it's for free!Investment protection-- it's not just a slide in my presentations, it's a real-world major differentiator.(Thanks, Alan)
