I really need to tell you all that I am intensely irritated that IBM have apparently chosen to drop Solaris as a supported platform for Quickr. I was expecting Quickr 8.1 to work on Solaris like all the previous versions of Quickr, as nothing was announced to the contrary. Did they announce they were going to drop Solaris support? Did they heck.

We even bought new Solaris servers to run it on. IBM have screwed their customers once again. Can we get an assurance that Domino itself will continue to be supported on Solaris?

Further to my last message, it would appear that IBM have a very strange platform list for Quickr on the very recently updated supported hardware/software list at http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=3264&uid=swg27009740

IBM Lotus Quickr 8.0.0.2:

services for WebSphere Portal
* HP-UX on HP Integrity
* Linux on x86
* Windows

services for Lotus Domino
* AIX
* i5/OS
* Solaris
* Windows

IBM Lotus Quickr 8.1:

services for WebSphere Portal
* Linux on x86
* Windows

services for Lotus Domino
* AIX
* i5/OS
* Windows

This means that if I want to run Quickr here on our supported platforms I -have- to run it under Windows as we dont have any WS Portal experience in house to be able to run it on Linux. This is ridiculous, and I'll certainly be taking it up with IBM UK.

Hi Andy,

100% ACK it is ridiculous that there's no quickr Version for Domino on Linux.
We got a Portal Server but it's not an option for us to run quickr on it.
If we would like to run it under Domino we have to run it on Windows and thats not realy an option too.
So let's hope IBM will release quickr for Domino on Linux.
