New poll: when will you be using Notes 8?

by Volker Weber

Lotus Notes 8 will be available tomorrow. When do you intend to use it? Or when will your IT people let you use it?

The results:



I hope you don't assume that all your readers are in some way knowledgeable about Lotus Notes?

You may rightfully say that I don't have to fill in the poll, but heck, it's almost impossible for me not to press a radio button that promises instant gratification through the display of coloured a 'I have nothing to do with Lotus Notes' option would be a great addition to the poll :)

That is what the last option is for. ;-)

I guess a simple "I don't use Lotus Notes" choice would not have been provocative enough ;-)

Alan, don't want to rain on your parade, but I have several readers who associate Lotus Notes with sucks. And I have never been accused of being PC.

You missed the "I'm already using it" option, for those using the betas.


Alex Hernandez, 2007-08-16

Not really. As it comes out tomorrow, you will probably want to vote ASAP.

Volker Weber, 2007-08-16

In fact, I did it :-)

...immediately when I have been able to detect the Mac version.

interesting note on the results that in my impression it surprisingly changed after about 200 something votes to "Lotus Notes, are you kidding?" - before that it was as far as I remember split evenly between "next year" and "shortly before notes 9"

Previous polls tended to be more stable in results...

@Volker: am I right in my impression? Any comments from you on the results?

My impression was that the "Notes community" voted very quickly, read: within the first 240 hours. After that you get a lot more people from the general readership. After about one week you have all regular readers of the site who wish to vote, and from then on you only get trough traffic, where maybe less than one percent choses to vote.
