Do your Notes apps make use of much OLE embedding? If so, how numerous and/or important are these apps?
Does you organization make use of the embedded MS word editor?
I ask this because the user experience with any embedded OLE object will be different in Notes 8. Specifically, INSTEAD of in-place activiation,
creating a new document or clicking on OLE control causes full client (Word, Excel, Paint, etc.) to launch.
The figure below shows the Notes 7 experience, where, thanks to in-place activation, the correct menu items get interleaved with the existing menu bar, etc.
This second figure below shows the planned Notes 8 experience where a separate window pops up on top of the Notes window
