Re: Strangling?

I was working in a corporation in the 1990's and they switched from Lotus Notes which the users were very good at creating business apps to MS Outlook and Exchange which could not seem to do much with themselves.

I was puzzled at the time why they did this and I am convinced it was just some sort of corporate conspiracy to get rid of Lotus from the computer industry.

Same sort of thing happened with Flash. Web developers loved it and users enjoyed the fancy animations but no we have to get rid of it, along with wolf whistling and proper light bulbs.
