Kudos to the Lotus team, whose new free (keyword: free!) Symphony office productivity software kept our Software Group Web servers cranking close to the redline over the past week.
Symphony has now been downloaded by over 100,000 registered business and consumer users.
Who said there's not a second act....err, overture...in software? (I'm referring, of course, to the first release of Lotus Symphony, an integrated software application for DOS that Lotus released in July 1984. Ah, the good ol' days of DOS.)
Lotus Symphony is comprised of three core applications, including Lotus Symphony Documents, Lotus Symphony Spreadsheets, and Lotus Symphony Presentations.
And yes, Lotus has heard your cry (and mine) for a Mac OS X version, which the Symphony Buzz page indicates is being targeted for beta in 1H08.
If you haven't played with the Lotus Symphony yet, you can access the streamlined download here.
