IBM = I'm Buying Microsoft?

This is the first time I've seen IBM insist that people use a Microsoft product when an alternative product is available. To add insult to injury, this error can only be seen by IBM Business Partners logging in to the IBM Partnerworld website to update their Business Plan for selling IBM products.


Now I have to dig through my hard drive to see if I still have IE on my computer.

grumble grumble

its a shame, but its true about M$ has gotten there Code everywhere to make our life more and more difficult.

Usually, if I hit a website that insists that it only accepts one type of browser, I write it off as "bad software".

I don't load up my flaky version of IE. I simply go elsewhere.

IBM... Fix it. No excuses.

How far do you think Foundations has progressed in development?

It doesn't seem far enough along to recommend it in a production environment.

My test in progress

After 10+ years being developed and sold under the Nitix brand and then another year in the IBM labs I'd say Foundations is certainly ready for production. That doesn't mean that there won't be glitches, bugs and a learning curve along the way, but that's true of any software - even Domino.
