Good call on noticing the press on the new Lotus eSuite. I've heard good things about the apps - they are small and to the point, unlike typical office Suite bloatware. They will run on anything that contains a browser - think of Palm Pilot, cell phones with screens, etc. I have reason to believe that WebTV version 2 is going to use eSuite for office apps. Yep. A $300 WebTV with a printer port and you've got....word processing, spreadsheets, calendar.

Oh, WebTV is now owned by Microsoft. And it has a powerful hardware platform that has nothing to do with Intel And Intel is scrambling to do set top boxes with Oracle. Oh, and Intel probably settled with DEC in order to get the low end RISC (StrongARM) chip -not the Alpha.

Is everyone's head spinning yet? At the very least Wintel looks like it is turning into!
