Ed Brill announced that in Q3 there will be a Domino server licensing entitlement for developers. Please raise your hand if you have asked for this last 10 year ! yep I can see lots of hands raised , But why now ? IMOP this is about 10 years to late. If you have certification as a Domino developer then you should have had Developers Entitlement to use Domino as many as you like to make all the apps that you can build. period. And the Notes designer should have been free from 2000. while we are at it ,, then using Notes mail / Domino server should have been free to use in every education institute in the world. IBM should have funded classes to get more Domino developer on board.
Am Sorry Paul but IBM are NOT listening and have not for long time. Everyone is moving to different platform and soon we will see more and more countries IBM Notes Free.
And with The Big blue business technology giant posted its ( I believe its ) 22th consecutive quarter of declining revenue tells me that someone is steering the ship in the wrong direction.
