The Power Of The Schwartz The Notes Workspace Must Die: "The old-guard's refusal to give up on the workspace is holding back the product. By sticking with something that's the poster child for everything that's ever been wrong with the Notes client UI it is reinforcing a major element of the 'Notes Sucks' meme that we really wish would go away. "
Interesting debate. I disagree; I still prefer the "classic" Notes workspace, although I agree it needs to be more customizable and programmable (which I assume is part of the plan for Notes Hannover). Of course, I'm not unbiased, having used Notes on a daily basis since ~1988 (starting pre-1.0 at Lotus). It all comes down to fundamental metamodel issues -- for me the database/workspace containment level is a central part of the model, and portal-esque alternatives don't suffice.
