ZD Net UK: Papows admits Lotus got it wrong about Linux

Back in October, Lotus said no
to Linux. Now they are admitting their mistake.

“During his keynote speech at Lotus’ user conference,
Lotusphere99, Papows stressed that the decision to support Linux
would not mean that Lotus would provide open souce or free ware.
“Cheques and money orders are still welcome,” he quipped.”


Why is the mainstream media making such a big deal out of
this statement about Lotus not going Open Source? It looks like
every single article on this subject tries very
hard to put that statement in there. -lt ed
