Not All IM Clients Are Created Equal
I’ve used several instant messaging clients up to now, but I’m recently getting some experience with Lotus Sametime. Somehow it feels like someone on the product side over there thought, “Hey, if we bill this as an ‘Enterprise’ client, we can ignore any UI goodness whatsoever! It doesn’t have to look good because it’s ‘Enterprise!’”
I think they should rename it “Lotus VB6time” because, well… see for yourself.
I can see the sales droid selling this now, invoking adjectives like “minimalist” and “rugged.” It doesn’t matter what it looks like as long as it works, right? Right?
