Is Lotus Notes still alive?

Yesterday I made the mistake and signed up to ZDNet so I can comment on an article. I made sure and unchecked all the boxes asking if I want to get various newsletters from them and offers from their commercial partners but still I started to receive their daily newsletter. I think I already got 3 in the last 18 hours which makes their days very short.

Anyway an e-mail junky as I am I flipped through their message and suddenly saw a familiar name:

Lotus

I was surprised. I have not heard it for a long time. I did not know Lotus Notes is still alive. So I searched for it and found that there is a huge family of Lotus products parked in a corner of the IBM warehouse.

I am not saying it excited me but I had some nostalgic feeling for the good old days when I used Lotus 1-2-3.

Anyway, after some time I spent with this I finally clicked through the original article just to find another Lotus.

Perl

Frankly I have no idea how does this relate to Perl but I need it in the text so the IronMan will pick up the post.

Or maybe there is an analogy?

ps

As apparently there was already at least one person who thought I am gaming the Ironman system with no good reason. Let me assure you, just as I wrote as a response to the blog, I really had a good reason. I do think there is an analogy and I think it is important for the Perl community to see this.

I am sorry if was not clear from the original post.
