IBM still doesn't get it. Cloud based apps are suppose to be simple and easy to use.

Creating a simple data collection form on Lotus Live took me almost 40 mins. First I had to create a template and then use the template to create a form. Why do I have to create a template? I don't know. Compare this to Google Apps - Creating a form in Google Apps is as simple as creating a excel spreadsheet and literally takes minutes. Really. Oh by the way, when I tried to save the form in Lotus Live, the application crashed and my browser exited.

IBM HAS to stop using Java. They gotta make the switch to AJAX, Adobe AIR, and MS Silverlight if they wanna compete with likes of MS Office Workspace or Google Docs.
