The lesson I learned at ILUG 2010

After a good sleep (still recovering from jetlag and an abysmal Illini performance on the football field yesterday), I am reflecting on the posts from Tom, Ed, and Volker. And I realized something.

The first half of the session will be a real-world comparison of Lotus Symphony to Microsoft Office and OpenOffice.org.
