Web2.0 goes to work, except in the Notes client!

Sorry, that title is a bit of a cheap shot, but this has been nagging at me for a while, and I finally had to say something…

Lotus has been dealing with Web2.0 technology for what, a minimum of 18 months – 2 years?  Blogs and wikis have been around for 5 years+, yes?

So why-oh-why does the Notes client spell check not recognise such common terms as web2.0, blog, wiki and mashup?  Even worse, why does it not recognise Lotus’ own trademark products, Sametime and Quickr?

Notes web2.0 spell-check

(Oh and I’m running the latest greatest Notes 8.5 Beta 1 here).

Surely it’s time for an update of the standard spell-check dictionaries for the Notes client?
