This week IBM announced a new version of Lotus Notes for Linux. Steve Hamm at Business Week did a great write-up that heaps lots of praise on Eclipse. I especially like the quote:
Thanks to Eclipse, IBM was able to produce the Linux version of Notes in just one year–and nearly a year ahead of its original projections. But that’s just the beginning of the savings. Eclipse allows IBM to maintain a single code base for Notes going forward for its Windows, Linux, and, soon, Macintosh versions.
I think it is a great story of the power of Eclipse RCP; a great example of a sophisticated desktop application that runs on both Windows and Linux and, soon, Macs.
