Lotus Symphony hits 250,000 downloads

From an IBM Partner newsletter:

IBM Lotus Symphony exceeds 250,000 registered users
IBM Lotus Symphony has been downloaded by more than 250,000 registered users in its first two months. Lotus Symphony software offers word processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications available at no charge to anyone and everyone. The latest version, beta 2, offers a simplified, single click installation process, a single launch icon, a “Getting Started” page for launching Lotus Symphony applications and many performance enhancements.

Whilst not huge figures, I think that Lotus Symphony is making progress – certainly Beta 2 is much improved over the first release…
