So IBM isn't going to ship pretty Lotus Notes database icons? Big deal.

by Volker Weber

A lot of handwringing now that Lotus is going to catch up with 20 years of graphics development with Notes eight dot five dot two. And will ship the capability to assign pretty database, err application icons, but not a complete icon set that replaces the 90s icons used so far. No icon testing capacity, I hear.

Go ahead and make them yourself, and then share them. Or let IBM make them and share them. Set up an IP clearing process. And a Pretty Notes Icon Design Steering Group. And a chairman for that. And publish the meeting notes. With full transparency. I mean for the icon background.


You are so mean ... But I like it :)

I see what you've done there. Clever.

I think people are going to be more upset with other things in 8.5.2 than the lack of pretty icons.
