For those of you using the beta, I'm sure you've noticed that when you start the client, you get tabs for Mail, Calendar, and Contacts (in addition to your Home page and the Getting started page.)
The reason that these 3 tabs show up is that we put them in the Startup folder
We did that so that users would see tabs for the PIM apps right off the bat (that is, to be conceptually similar with another popular mail program that shows users 3 buttons down along the lower left).
The dev team has spent time making sure that these tabs are "lazy loaded" -- that is, we put the tabs up there but do not load the application until Samantha, to mimize the effect on startup time. (while the effect has been minimised, there is a teeny time effect).
If you are the Domino admin, I'm sure you already know that you can put things in the startup folder (or take them out) on behalf of your Samanthas when you deploy.
IS it a good thing that we put mail, calendar, and contacts there for Samantha (and you?) or would you rather have us take them out and you Domino admins can put them in for your individual deployments?
