Imagine combining this with Notes 8!

I was directed to a site for an interesting product by my subscription to Eclipse news. The piece wasn't on Eclipse per say but on a product based on Eclipse. The product is called Tasktop and looks awesome. There's a *very* nice Flash demo as well that I recommend you take a look at.

So what's so special about this? Well besides being a nice tool with some, what appears to be killer functionality, it's written on the same platform as Notes 8! (that would be Eclipse for those who hasn't guessed that) It wouldn't be a monumental task to bring it into the Notes 8 client. How's that for a context sensitive workbench? Combine it with the workflow of Notes - you could work wonders. Imagine having context tasks in Notes combined with links to activities, e-mails, databases, views, Notes documents, Sametime transcripts, Quickr documents, documents on file shares... It makes my mouth water!

Wow!

IBM should definitely pick up on this. That would be nothing like my dear old Notes client! It would be Notes on steroids!

P.S.: I know I went a little overboard with the exclamation marks! :-)

I've been using Mylyn or ~6 months ans can't image Eclipse life without it. The same kind of functionality in Notes and available to applications would be awesome. This gives new meaning to "Smart Client".

The exclamation marks are welcome and needed to overcome some of  the inevitable inertia at IBM.

Yeah Mylyn is great but most times I don't really need it for the code bases I have been working on lately :-( It's great for me when browsing large open source frameworks though.

Really Impresionant!

When we start to make a connection to Notes??? ;)

Eclipse is really incredible too...
