The IBM/Apple relationship reminds me of a couple boyfriends of mine.

If they like the Mac so damn much, how about a MacOS version of Lotus SmartSuite?

Wow, had no idea SmartSuite was still around. I thought they gutted Lotus of everything except Notes. Why would they bother to do it? Nothing in it for them. Office is king because that's what businesses use.

How about DB2 support... at least a DB2 client.

If the Mac version of Lotus Notes is anything like the PC version it sucks massive ***. I use LN at work and I can tell you it is a festering pile of ****. Its backend isn't half bad though. Screw Notes. I'd rather see a full blown version of MS Outlook ported to OS X.

That will give IBM something to work on then ;)

I hope this is a sign of things to come from all App developers. We have mentioned games time and time again with the switch to x86, but I hope it heralds an era when software boxes all say on them "PC/Mac DVD" in their top corner, meaning it will install on both. That way, few will have any arguments about switching, since I find most people are currently held back by software compatibility.
