Notes is an amazing application ...

by Volker Weber

... which allows anyone to organise anything.

Is this generic enough ? ;-)

This seems to be a different application that Lotus Notes, although the name is the same. But also in KDE there is an application called knotes, so there are many copyright violators out there.

I never got Lotus Notes 1.0 work, it was missing some files (I downloaded it from the IBM Lotus Notes Museum). But I think the UI of Lotus Notes 1.0 was better than of any other Lotus Notes version - it seemed to have somekind of freely placable workspace icons, not even Notes 8.0.1 allows that!

Hi Mika,

Notes 1 didn't have a free form layout, it was basically two columns. The Museum stuff did work, just the install was a little convoluted getting things done in the right order, ID files etc..

Here's a movie I just recorded of the two column format so you know how it looked. I also recorded some other stuff just to show you have menu contents have changed :-)

Don't expect it to be named Notes for long!

Love the simplified UI.

And, if it's built on Eclipse, then there are probably versions for Windows and Linux too, though the downloadable installers may be rather large...

@Rob. I'd love the know the hourly rate of the lawyer that will write the letter to them. (in reality it will probably be in house counsel and a form letter with a few words changed around.)

Thanks Carl, that was a great video!

Finally I could see how Notes 1.0 really was. Well, they actually made the workspace better after that then :)

The interesting thing is that Notes 1.0 can probably still access Domino 8 servers and applications, if you don't use any design elements which it doesn't understand (they would just be invisible I suppose).

I wonder if IBM could make Notes 1.0 openSource, I'd love to port it to Linux :)

Maybe this could be the basis for a whole new advertising campaign from Lotus?
