  122. <a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/NotesFeaturePack10.jpg" border="0"></a> <br /> <br />There are some great new enhancements delivered with the latest release of Notes and Domino with IBM's continued commitment to deliver upgrades, enhancements and fixes with our "Feature Pack" delivery Model. I am particularly excited about the Eclipse platform modernisation and the inclusion of Sametime 9.0.1 as a default installation option. <br /> <br />Notably, this Feature Pack paves the way for the upcoming IBM Notes, Domino and Sametime <a href="https://www.ibm.com/blogs/collaboration-solutions/2017/10/25/ibm-announces-investment-notes-domino-version-10-beyond/">Version 10</a> releases coming later this year. <br /> <br />Highlights to note in this latest release: <br /> <br /><strong>New Features in IBM Notes/Domino® 9.0.1 Social Edition Feature Pack 10</strong> <br /> <br />1) The JVM in Designer is Upgraded to use 1.8 at compile time <br />With this new upgrade, you can launch Designer client and leverage Java 1.8 compile time features in building applications. For full compatibility, apps compiled in FP10 should be deployed on Notes or Domino FP10 and higher. Java apps may run on Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP8 and higher as that release upgrade to Java 1.8 runtime. However, Application best practice is to compile with the lowest common denominator to the client/server version deployed. <br /> <br />2) Eclipse Platform Upgraded to 4.6.2 - The 9.0.1 FP10 platform is upgraded from Eclipse 3.4.2 to Eclipse 4.6.2. This includes SWT, OSGi, Jface and other re-lated Eclipse plugins. Notes, Designer, Embedded Sametime, and Connections Plugins now leverage Eclipse 4.6.2. The Domino server uses the OSGi bundles from Eclipse 4.6.2 for servlet and XPages access. <br /> <br />3) Embedded Sametime Upgraded To 9.0.1 By Default <br />The default version of the Embedded Sametime in the Notes Client has been upgraded to the 9.0.1 (previously 8.5.2), which eliminates the need ...

GSKit is used for FIPs support, AES , 1024+ RSA, and Diffie-Hellman. IBM i will be evaluated for a future release. <br /> <br />5) Japanese User Interface Update <br />An optional Japanese User Interface update includes fixes for high-impact localization defects. The 'IBM Notes Client 9.0.1 FP10 Japanese User Interface Update' requires 9.0.1 Japanese Client/Japanese MUI + FP10. <br /> <br />6) Add-on Installer for Notes CCM (Connections Content Manager) <br />An add-on installer for Notes CCM eliminates the need for special hotfixes but does require 9.0.1 FP10. This optional add-on allows a Notes client to show Libraries from CCM for use with email and calendar. <br />Note: The Notes CCM now supports the Dutch language in addition to previously supported languages For more details on CCM, see https://www.ibm.com/us-en/marketplace/connections-content-management.  <br /> <br />You can read all about the detailed fixes and other enhancements <a href="http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf/WhatsNew/86a6c4ba892f0218852581fc0067b4f4?OpenDocument">HERE</a> in the <a href="http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf/WhatsNew/86a6c4ba892f0218852581fc0067b4f4?OpenDocument">Announcement Letter</a>. <br /> <br />Upgrade Time :-D <br /> <br />Enjoy!  ]]></content:encoded>

  169. <title>IBM Domino - The absolute definition of elegance in architecture and operation</title>

  172. <![CDATA[
  173. <br /> <br /> <br />Today I had the pleasure of discussing an upcoming move of data-centre and Domino upgrade with a customer. They have a population of around 8,000 users, hosted on two clustered IBM Domino servers, utilising iNotes and sitting behind a proxy and load balancer, with a single Traveler server hosting their growing mobile population. <br /> <br />They are moving the location of their data-centre to a new purpose built facility, upgrading Domino to the latest version and Feature Pack, deploying some of their additional entitlements for the first time, and implementing a Traveler "High Availability" configuration. Obviously Traveler in HA is an absolute necessity in this modern era of mobile. <br /> <br />Oh. And they are truly a 24/7 operation. There is to be no down-time during the move. Zero. Nothing. Nada. <br /> <br />And did I mention that one of the requirements is to move from an existing IBM operating system to Linux? <br /> <br />And did I also mention that we are in a situation where the old foe is offering to do an implementation, migration, co-existence and go-live in a 5 month time-frame? For "Free"? <br /> <br />... Any-hoo <br /> <br />Out came the whiteboard makers and it was time to reiterate one of the true benefits of IBM Domino: It's architecture. <br /> <br />Possibly one of the most brilliant features of Domino is that it's configuration has nothing to do with OS, no dependency on registry entries or other Operating System integration, and the actual data is completely separate from the application, meaning a Domino application server on the latest software version easily copes with data created several versions ago. Seamlessly. Add to that, a Domino servers configuration is almost entirely confined to an .ini file, and the configuration databases located within it's "Data" directory.

Any-hoo <br /> <br />Out came the whiteboard makers and it was time to reiterate one of the true benefits of IBM Domino: It's architecture. <br /> <br />Possibly one of the most brilliant features of Domino is that it's configuration has nothing to do with OS, no dependency on registry entries or other Operating System integration, and the actual data is completely separate from the application, meaning a Domino application server on the latest software version easily copes with data created several versions ago. Seamlessly. Add to that, a Domino servers configuration is almost entirely confined to an .ini file, and the configuration databases located within it's "Data" directory. Regardless of OS type or version. Regardless of File system. It's beautiful in it's simplicity and durability. <br /> <br />So the discussion and project plan about the cut-over to a new Data-Centre, OS, Software Version and new capabilities went something like this: <br /> <br /><strong>Preparation:</strong> <ul> <li>Register the new HA Traveler servers in the Domain, </li><li>Configure The new Proxy/Load-Balancer, </li><li>Implement a new IBM Protector Server, </li><li>Set up and configure the new Traveler servers in HA, working with the existing servers, behind the new Proxy/Balancer, </li><li>Test the new Traveler server configuration, and </li><li>Install and configure the OS and Software for the soon-to-be-new Domino Servers.</li></ul> <br /><strong>Implementation part #1:</strong> <ul> <li>Change the network configuration to point to the new Proxy/Balancer/Traveler HA, </li><li><em>Wait a day to make sure everything is working,</em> </li><li>Shut down 'Server B", </li><li>Copy it's data from the old SAN, </li><li>Move it's data to the new Data Centre and point the new "Server B"'s configuration to that data location, </li><li>Change the network configuration so that DNS points to "Server B"'s new location </li><li>Bring up the NEW "Server B" </li><li><em>(Contingency plan: If anything goes wrong, just change DNS again and turn on old "Server B", fix problem, proceed to next step)</em></li></ul> <br />Of course, at this point, "Server B" comes on line, connects to "Server A" and cluster replicates any of the data that has changed since the original "Server B" was shut down. <br /> <br /><strong>Implementation part #2:</strong> <ul> <li><em>Again, Wait a day (we're a conservative bunch!)</em> </li><li>Shut down 'Server A", </li><li>Copy it's data from the old SAN, </li><li>Move it's data to the new Data Centre and point the new "Server A"'s configuration to that data location, </li><li>Change the network configuration so that DNS points to "Server A"'s new location </li><li>Bring up the NEW "Server A", </li><li><em>Wait a day,</em> </li><li><em>(Contingency plan: If anything goes wrong, just change DNS again and turn on old "Server A", fix problem, proceed to next step)</em> </li><li>Switch the inbound MX to point to the new Protector server.</li></ul> <br /><strong>Post Move Enhancements:</strong> <ul> <li>Performance tuning Domino to take advantage of the latest features, </li><li>Implement IBM Sametime, </li><li>Implement IBM Connections Files and Profiles, </li><li>Implement IBM Docs, </li><li>Enable IBM Verse on Premises for the users</li></ul> <br />Drive adoption with IBM's #NewWayToWork <br /> <br />Project complete. <br /> <br />Shave 4 months off the competitors time-line. Provide ZERO down-time.  <br /> <br />We're conservatively estimating the "preparation" phase to last 4 weeks, and the Implementation phase of moving the existing Domino servers to the NEW data centre at 6 days (double the actual time to implement, because we're being conservative and allowing a day in between for contingency at each step of the cut-over. <br /> <br />The thing that makes this transition so simple - so elegant - is the fact that Domino separates OS and Application and Data. Oh, and Replication. What an absolutely magical thing that is in a Domino world. Bring up the new "Server B", which has all the data that the old "Server B" had when it was shut down, and it just pulls the changes from between those two points in time from the old "Server A". And then the same thing happens when the new "Server A" comes up. <br /> <br />And then there's Domino Clustering. Oh Domino. You are a thing of beauty. Downtime ... Zero! <br /> <br />This. Stuff. Just. Works! <br /> <br />IBM Domino - The absolute definition of elegance in architecture and operation. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />  ]]></content:encoded>

  190. UserBLAST 2016 is the latest in a series of presentations I've put together to help users understand and appreciate some of the best (and sometimes hidden) features of the IBM software that I love working with so much. <br /> <br />This year I had taken some direction from the inspirational <a href=http://www.linkedin.com/in/pmooneynet/en>Paul Mooney</a>, who had advised that to truly qualify as a "BLAST" a session needed to have as many tips included within the allotted time, such that attendees would leave the room feeling like they had just "drunk from a fire-hose of information" with their heads spinning from the experience. <br /> <br />With that in mind, I put together a huge deck brimming full of ideas which allowed less than 30 seconds per slide for explanation in order to get through it all. This of course, resulted in "#UserBLAST2016" and - I hope - finally qualifies as a true "BLAST". I've had a lot of fun with it, not only being able to present this at IBM Connect, but also #Inform (AusLUG) in Australia, #Engage in Europe and a number of Business Partner lead events here in South East Asia. It was even more fun delivering it in Sydney for #Inform back in March, because the organisers told me that my allowed time was only 30 minutes instead of 50 ... only moments before the session started! Of course, I was completely out of breath at the end of that session and If you've ever heard an Australian calling a horse-race, you would understand why ;-) <br /> <br /><strong>Here's the Abstract:</strong> <br />It's time for your annual injection of Energy, Enthusiasm and Education! Join the man in #Yellow as he BLASTS his way through his top tips on Desktop, Browser, Mobile and even Cloudy aspects of the IBM Collaboration Solutions portfolio.

  207. <title>Shared or Group Calendars in IBM Notes</title>

  211. The topic of Shared or Group Calendars has come up a lot recently during discussions with Customers. The main requirement is a calendar which can have multiple people assigned to managing the Calendar content, in addition to this Calendar having full Calendaring and Scheduling (<strong>C&amp;S</strong>) functionality for things like sending meeting invitations to Internal or External recipients, receiving replies, sending update notifications, reschedules, repeats, etc. In other words, a "Generic" Calendar that doesn't belong to a specific person, and can be managed by any number of people. <br /> <br />The other requirement was to make this Calendar visible when accessed by users out of the office on their mobile device. In a future blog, I'll share how to add this newly created calendar to anyone's IBM Traveler/Verse Mobile calendar who needs to see the calendar when they're mobile. <br /> <br />This functionality isn't difficult to create (of course! it's Notes!), but I couldn't find the steps for it anywhere for the customers to follow, hence ... here it is. <br /> <br />In our demonstration below, the calendar will simply have the title "<strong>The Group Calendar</strong>". <br /> <br />The Steps: an Overview <br /> <ol> <li value=1>Create a Mail-In Database document to control the Database (calendar) profile, <li value=2>Create the Database, <li value=3>Change the "Owner" of the Database in the Profile, <li value=4>Change the "Launch" option for the database, <li value=5>Add users through the Calendar Profile "Access and Delegation" who will be able to Read/Edit the Calendar Content.</ol> <br />It's as simple as that.

Now for the Details. <br /> <br /><strong>1. Create a Mail-In Database document to control the Database (calendar) profile:</strong> <br /> <br />The Mail-In Database document is required for two reasons: <br /> <ul> <li>It enables the Domino Server to understand that your Shared Calendar has it's own Internal and External (if required) address for the purposes of C&amp;S routing, </li><li>The "Name" used in the Mail-In database document can be assigned as the Calendar Profile "owner" in the database, hence Meeting Invitations, etc, that are created by the calendar will come from this "Name", ie: "The Group Calendar" mentioned earlier</li></ul> <br />Your calendar can have any name you require, for example if you are creating a calendar for your Marketing department, you might call it "Marketing Calendar", IT: "IT Calendar", etc... <br /> <br />The huge tip here is that the "Name" assigned in the Mail-In Database document must be in canonical (ie: Notes) format, otherwise you will not be able to choose this name later when assigning it as the "Owner" of the database. <br /> <br />To create the Mail-In Database configuration document: <br /> <ul> <li>Navigate to the "Mail In Databases and Resources" view in your Domino Directory, </li><li>Choose "Add Mail In Database" (note: you may require Administrator access to add this type of record), </li><li>Complete the fields to configure the Mail In Database, </li><li>Save and Close.</li></ul> <br /><strong>Figure 1: The Mail In Database and Resources view from the Domino Directory</strong> <br /><a

Change the "Owner" of the Database in the Profile:</strong> <br /> <br />Upon opening the Database for the first time, the creator will be prompted to change the "owner" value in the "Mail File Preferences" <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 4: Prompt to change the owner</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar05.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar05.png" alt="Figure 4: Prompt to change the owner" width="397px" height="153px"></a>  <br /> <br />To complete this step: <br /> <ul> <li>From the Database "Action Bar", choose <strong>&#91;More&#93; -> &#91;Preferences&#93;</strong>, </li><li>Next to the "Owner" field choose <strong>&#91;Change&#93;</strong>, </li><li>Choose <strong>&#91;Yes&#93;</strong> to confirm the Owner Name Change, </li><li>Browse through your Domino Directory to locate the Mail In Database name created at Step.1. </li><li>Choose <strong>&#91;OK&#93;</strong> to confirm the Name, </li><li>Choose <strong>&#91;OK&#93;</strong> to modify the Mail File Preferences</li></ul> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 5: Accessing the Database Preferences</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar06.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar06.png" alt="Figure 5: Accessing the Database Preferences" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 6: Changing the Owner</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar07.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar07.png" alt="Figure 6: Changing the Owner" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 7: Confirm - "Owner Name Change'</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar08.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar08.png" alt="Figure 7: Confirm - 'Owner Name Change'" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 8: Select the 'Mail In Database' created earlier at step 1 as the new owner</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar09.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar09.png" alt="Figure 8: Select the 'Mail In Database' created earlier at step 1 as the new owner" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>4. Change the "Launch" option for the Database:</strong> <br /> <br />This one is pretty simple. You've created the database for the purpose of Shared Calandering, right? So it only makes sense that when the database is opened (whether from a Notes open dialog, or by accessing it using one of the many Notes calendar features available) that the Database should open automatically to the Calendar view, rather than the Mail view. <br /> <br />The process for changing the database to open to the Calendar, rather than the Mail view is really simple: <br /> <ul> <li>Access the Database Properties, <strong>&#91;File&#93; -> &#91;Application&#93; -> &#91;Properties&#93;</strong> ( or <strong>&#91;Alt&#93;+&#91;Enter&#93;</strong> on your Keyboard), </li><li>Switch to the "<strong>Launch</strong>" Tab, </li><li>Change the Notes Launch options from "MailFS" (the default) to "CalendarFS" </li><li>Close the Database Properties dialog </li><li>Close the Database</li></ul> <br />When re-opened, the database should now open directly into the "Calendar" view, as shown in <strong>Figure 11</strong>. <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 9: Accessing the Database Properties</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar10.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar10.png" alt="Figure 9: Accessing the Database Properties" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 10: Changing the 'Launch' option from Mail (MailFS) to Calendar (CalendarFS)</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar11.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar11.png" alt="Figure 10: Changing the 'Launch' option from Mail (MailFS) to Calendar (CalendarFS)" width="432px" height="373px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 11: The newly configured Shared Calendar database, opening directly to the Calendar View</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar12.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar12.png" alt="Figure 11: The newly configured Shared Calendar database, opening directly to the Calendar View" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>5. Add users through the Calendar Profile "Access and Delegation" who will be able to Read/Edit the Calendar Content:</strong> <br /> <br />Finally, managing access to the new shared calendar is pretty straight forward, and can be done without modifying the Database Access Control List (ACL), simply by changing the delegation options within the Database Profile to include the users or groups who will have the ability to Manage the calendar content, or to simply Read the content of the shared Calendar. <br /> <br />To Add or Remove people from the Calendar's "Access and Delegation" list, follow these steps: <br /> <ul> <li>From the Database "Action Bar", choose <strong>&#91;More&#93; -> &#91;Preferences&#93;</strong> &nbsp;(see Figure 5: Accessing the Database Preferences, above), </li><li>Go to the Access and Delegation Tab of the Database Preferences, </li><li>Next to "Delegate access to these people or groups:", Choose the <strong>&#91;Add...&#93;</strong> button </li><li>In the "Add People/Groups" dialog, Choose an Individual or group who you are assigning access, choose whether they will be able to create/manage or only read the Calendar, </li><li>Choose Ok </li><li>Choose Ok to close the Calendar Preferences</li></ul> <br /><strong>Figure 12: The Database 'Access and Delegation' dialog</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar13.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar13.png" alt="Figure 12: The Database 'Access and Delegation' dialog" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /><strong>Figure 13: Adding a User or Group to the Calendar access profile</strong> <br /><a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar14.png" border="0"><img  src="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/IBMNotes_GroupCalendar14.png" alt="Figure 13: Adding a User or Group to the Calendar access profile" width="590px" height="334px"></a>  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />And that's IT! <br /> <br />You now have a Database configured as a shared calendar, which can be accessed by anyone who is added to the Calendar Delegation Profile, and which can send an receive Calendar Invitations and Notices with full IBM Notes C&amp;S functionality. <br /> <br />In the next blog, I'll show you how to set up this calendar as an overlay in your own Notes client, and how you can then access the shared calendar when on a mobile device with IBM Traveler/Verse mobile. <br /> <br />Enjoy!! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />  ]]></content:encoded>

  228. Tonight, as I settled down to my evening of collating all things "work" for the day, I experienced one of those wonderful moments that a traveller rarely gets to experience, but will resonate as a "moment" for one's entire life. <br /> <br />While working, I picked up on the "twang" of the accent emanating from the couple at the table beside me ... it was familiar, and yet, a world away. <br /> <br />After listening to their banter for an enjoyable few minutes, I interjected; "excuse me, are you folks from Cheshire?" <br /> <br />Cheshire is a county in England, and has a distinctive accent that is typical of most regions (or even villages) throughout the British Isles ... <br /> <br />Apparently, not only were the couple from the county that my wife had grown up in, they were from the village that she prefers to call home! <br /> <br />Interesting, because "Trav" and "Jan" were originally from England, but now live in the Caribbean (an entirely different conversation there Francie!) and spend their lives drifting from one exotic dive location to the next. <br /> <br />For the next few hours, we gleefully engaged in stories of our favourite places back in bonny ol' England, the "Bears Paw", the "Helter Skelter" and the "Devonshire Bakery" located on the high street. <br /> <br />It was truly a wonderful evening, where travellers shared tips, locations and "must-do's". <br /> <br />Quite simply, it reminded me that the world is, indeed, such a small place <br /> <br />I hope you enjoy many moments like the one I shared with our "drifters" tonight. The world truly is an amazing place, full of wonderful people. And if one removes the blinkers for just a single moment, it becomes even better. <br /> <br />Why does this matter? because in just a few short weeks, I will be catching up with friends and colleagues from around the world, whom all share similar interests and the experiences that I do.

  313. The past couple of days have seen a little milestone pass: 5 years working with the "<a href="http://www.matnewman.com/webs/personal/matblog.nsf/dx/26072010201920MNEE56.htm?opendocument" title="26072010201920MNEE56.htm" target="_blank"/>Alternate Reality</a>" that I first wrote about back in 2010. <br /> <strong><br /> FIGURE 1: My Desktop Today</strong> <br /> <a href="http://matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/20150727_Linux_Notes_5_Years.png" border="0"></a> <br /> <br /> This started as an experiment to determine whether it was truly possible to move completely away from the "Standard" Microsoft Operating System and Document Editors used by so many in corporate life.

Most certainly. When I began, my experience with Linux extended to basic server installations capable of supporting a Domino server infrastructure. Working with Linux as my personal platform - along with a personal tendency to "pull things apart" to see how they work - has dramatically increased my understanding, knowledge of and respect for Linux as a platform. &nbsp;I no longer have any hesitation recommending it to customers as a server platform for their Applications, nor as a true alternative on the desktop. &nbsp;Customers in this region are extremely cost-sensitive, and I now know a few of them who are rolling out Linux on desktop to take better advantage of lower-speced hardware and to reduce their licensing costs. <br /> <br /> Fun! How can an operating system be fun? Those who work on Mac know how useful multiple workspaces are for organising and switching focus between applications. The ability to completely customise the interface beyond just a visual theme that changes colours and icon sizes is awesome. Want a Mac-style launcher, just go to the Software Centre. Want window icons to do different things, or be in a different location, just change a preference. Want multiple locations visible in your file manager, just press F3. The flexibility to have an interface do what you want, and the ability to modify the way almost everything works to fulfil your own personal preferences is just wonderful. <br /> <br /> Of course, things aren't always perfect. I do find myself messing about with printer settings to get them to work properly, and there are sometimes issues with external monitors, and while those issues aren't limited to just Linux it can be frustrating when things don't "just work". Overall though, each new version of Ubuntu for the past couple of years has addressed hardware compatibility issues to the point that the instances where something doesn't work is extremely rare. When I first started with Ubuntu 10.04 I was constantly hacking configuration files to get things running properly. The past couple of versions I find myself rarely having to do that. <br /> <br /> Thankfully the single application that I use the most <strong>does</strong> "just work" on Linux, as you can see from figure 1, IBM Notes on a Linux desktop with Connections Files, Updates and Activities, Sametime Chat, Meetings and Unified Telephony works just perfectly. <br /> <br /> And that's why I started "testing" an alternate reality 5 years ago ... and I haven't looked back.   ]]></content:encoded>
