In Notes 8.0 and 8.0.1 we allow Samantha to close the Home page. Thiswas an intentional departure from previous versions, where she couldnot close the Home page.
Some of the reasons were that we'd heard a few customers who wantedusers to be able to do that in order to free up more screen real estateacross the top for other tabs.
Having a non-closeable home page was not a feature that Xpeditorsupported, and the Symphony standalone did not use such a thing,either. So, that's why Samantha can close the Home page in Notes 8 and801. She can re-open it by choosing it from Open list (It's nearthe bottom, but she might not know that.)
The Home page ALWAYS still opens when you restart the client.
What do you think? Should we change the behavior in Notes 8.5 so that the home page is not closeable? Why or why not?
