IBM takes aim at Office with free productivity apps - Network World

Nice catch from John Fontana; perhaps IBM concluded Wikipedia updates are more effective than traditional press releases...

IBM is the pioneer in offline use with its Notes architecture and is likely to build similar capabilities into the Symphony offering, although IBM’s Brill said he had no announcements around future plans.

Lotus has used the Symphony name before, on an integrated package of productivity applications for DOS that was a follow-on to the Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet program. The package did not meet with great success, and IBM wasted no time updating its Wikipedia entry for Lotus Symphony.
