Ibm Lotus Symphony 소개 (L10N 로터스 심포니)

본 포럼에서는 소개가 많이 되지 않았습니다만, 포럼 회원분들의 개인 블로그에서는 몇 몇 분들이 소개나 관련글을 남기셨더군요.
그동안 한글 내용을 열어 볼 수만 있었는데, [u:1eelo9mv][b:1eelo9mv]최근 한글 입출력이 되도록 판올림 되었길레 소개드립니다. [/b:1eelo9mv][/u:1eelo9mv]
글쓰는 지금 싯점에 L10N 이 얼마나 잘 됐는지 많이 사용해보지는 못했습니다.

백문이 불여일견, 사진 몇 점 올립니다.

저는 1980년대 CP/M OS에서 SuperCalc와 VisiCalc를 사용하다가,
90년대에는 DOS에서 Lotus 123 보다 먼저 Lotus Symphony 를 썼습니다.
123가 SpreadSheet 전용 무른모 였다면,
[b:1eelo9mv]Symphony는 표계산+문서처리+dBase+Graph가 연동되며 다국어 지원이 가능한 최초의 WISWIG 무른모[/b:1eelo9mv] 였는데 Text 터미널만 10년 쳐다보다가 GUI를 처음 보는 순간 아주 환상적이었던 기억이 납니다. 어찌나 짜릿하던지…아마 심청이 아버지 눈 뜬 ? :shock:

2000년대에도 그 향수를 잊지 못하고 DOS용 원본 디스크(9장짜리*3.5인치 플러피)를 영국(온라인 매장)에서 어렵게 찾아서 사기도 했습니다. 뭐죠? 소장용으로…

M$ 윈도우 3.1이 나오고 엑셀 등 ‘오피스’ 시리즈에 밀리면서 Lotus Development Company가 어느사이엔가 IBM에 합병이 되었었나 봅니다.
앞으로 [u:1eelo9mv][b:1eelo9mv]'Open Office’와 더불어 IBM Lotus Symphony가 또 하나의 큰 맥으로 이어 갈 것으로 믿습니다.[/b:1eelo9mv][/u:1eelo9mv]

워드퍼펙트가 생각나는군요. 당시 획기적인 프로그램이었는데.
MSX에서 베이직 프로그램 짜던 추억까지 생각나는군요.

로 정정, 추가합니다.

아! 로터스 123 기억납니다. ㅋㅋ.

그 로터스가 아직 개발되고 있다니 대단하군요. IBM의 힘인가요? ㅎㅎ

일단 스샷으로 보니 참 좋아 보입니다. :)

엇… 이거 예전에 어디서 공짜 오피스 프로그램 소개에서 본 적 있는데…

그때는 평이 안좋았더랬는데 역시 MS오피스에 익숙해진 분인 탓이었을는지도…

Canonical offers dedicated support program for Lotus Symphony, the core component of IBM Client for Smart Work on Ubuntu[/size:2lmar0tw][/b:2lmar0tw]

IBM Lotusphere/Florida, Jan 18, 2010: Canonical today announced a dedicated support program for Lotus Symphony, the no-charge office productivity alternative which is a core component of IBM Client for Smart Work (ICSW) on Ubuntu. This support is made available to customers by Canonical through the IBM and Canonical partner network. Organisations can now switch to an alternative platform from Microsoft for their business productivity needs with full confidence that the core solution is fully supported.

The IBM Client for Smart Work, based on IBM productivity and collaboration software, helps organisations save up to 50 percent per seat on software costs versus a Microsoft-based desktop, in addition to avoiding requisite hardware upgrades. The package allows companies to use their existing PCs, lower-cost netbooks and thin clients.

"We are very pleased to put a specific support program in place that IBM and Canonical partners can start to deliver," said Steve George, VP (Sales and Product Management), Corporate Services at Canonical. "With IBM we are slashing the costs to business for their basic productivity suite. Faced with the upgrade costs to Windows 7 many organizations are rightly considering an alternative. Ubuntu and the IBM Client for Smart Work represents that alternative."

The open standards-based core solution comprises of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition and Lotus Symphony, which includes word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, fully supported by Canonical at $5.50 per user, per month based on 1000 seat deployment.

Optional solution components include desktop virtualisation and recovery options using VERDE from Virtual Bridges, and a variety of Lotus collaboration capabilities with choice of delivery model: on premise, on the cloud, or using an appliance.

"The economic case for Ubuntu and the IBM Client for Smart Work is unarguable," says Shiv Kumar, EVP of Sales at ZSL, one of the first IBM and Canonical partners to make this solution available. "The addition of support from Canonical at super-competitive pricing means companies have the reassurance of world class support through the entire stack. We are really excited about bringing this option to our new and existing clients and providing them with cost savings and productivity improvements at a stroke."

"We have seen tremendous interest in this solution since we launched it initially in Africa and more recently in the United States," said Bob Sutor, VP Linux and Open Source at IBM. "Canonical’s support program for Ubuntu and ICSW offers our partners a great package to bring to their customers and we look forward to more of them signing up to do just that. For customers looking to break the cycle of license fee renewals and upgrade costs for Windows a real alternative is here."
