eWEEK Labs Walk-Through: Lotus Symphony 1.1 - Fresh Interface

By eWEEK Labs  |  Posted 2008-10-06 Print this article Print


Upon firing up the Lotus Symphony 1.1 word processor application, I was impressed right away by its tabbed interface, which makes switching between different documents-
Lotus Symphony 1.1 is a freely-available office productivity suite from IBM that brings together a trio of word processor, spreadsheet and presentation applications under a Big Blue label. Symphony's interface is new, based on Eclipse, but its internals are old, based on OpenOffice.org 1.1.4; the result is a fairly good productivity suite with an interface that's much fresher-and a feature set that's more stale-than those that grace the OpenOffice.org 3.0 release I recently tested.
