If it is then the marketing wizards at IBM did not give it too much thought. Let see, IBM just (several months ago) released their cloud based solution...what was it called, oh yea LOTUSLIVE! So they built the entire cloud solution around the name LOTUS and now they are going to strip it away. I'm sure in the magical land that is IBM, that makes perfect sense. I'm sure will soon become a redirect to or some other nonsense. Lately IBM hasn't made much sense at all with the Lotus brand. To me it seems like they just can't figure out what to do with it.
