IBM Tosses Office, Wins Bank Deal for Lotus

IBM is, not unreasonably, ditching Microsoft Office for hundreds of thousands of its employees and sticking them with IBM's open source Lotus Symphony. It's perfectly reasonable, of course, for IBM to want its employees to use its own products (or, at least, not to use competitive products), but we hope for IBM's sake that these folks don't have problems communicating with the rest of the world, which uses Office. (The Open Document Format should solve any of those problems, though...right?)

In other IBM news, Big Blue won U.S. Bank as a customer for the Lotus collaboration suite.
