“IBM was here first!”

When your product name clashes with the name of an app that suddenly gets built into an operating system, much fun ensues: Supportability Q&A about Lotus Notes and OS X 10.8

It’s not just one of those things that’s funny because it’s happening to IBM, but there’s also an interesting lesson in software engineering and not being able to plan for everything.

As always Volker has some amusing discussion over on his site, along with an amusing image that I won’t link to directly here. If you like reading more Yellowsphereverse gnashing of teeth then I suggest heading over there to read more!
