There is much talk arountd a new 'thin' Notes client - moving away from Eclipse. Most users only remember the Eclipse Client (they are not as old as me!) The Workspace and Righthand tool bor is to them, IBM Notes. What ever chages are made these two have to persist. We have Sametime IM and Meeting Romms on the right, The Connections PlugIn, Our IT Support outstanding actions - personal to the user etc etc. Without this eclipse frame (or a thin replacement) Notes will be a poorer place.
So my idea is not something new, but ensuring that we keep something good about the existing client!
