.NET and Domino

Another piece on Notes at eWeek: Microsoft Zeros In on Lotus:

“It’s hard to understand Java without a computer science background. But Notes developers come from business departments, not computer science or IS departments,” Devendorf said.

Mmmf! Hey! I’m doing OK with Java! Heh heh. Well, ludicrous generalisations aside, I can see where Gary’s coming from, and in many ways .NET does make for a good fit with Domino. I’d be surprised if IBM put up heavy resistance to this given that (hopefully) the IT world is moving away from the either / or approach to .NET and Java-based platforms.

Isn’t it?

Update: This article is also the subject of discussion over at Ed’s site.
