Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3, Pentium 4 HT, 3.00 GHz-x64-1 Gb. DDR-400
I was wondering, who still uses Lotus Smartsuite for daily work? I use it for inventory of computers but I was wondering if I am the only one who uses it.

Pentium 4s - The processors for the rest of us.

I don't, but I have friends who use Smartsuite to run a vocational school.

I used it (SS97) sparingly on an old machine; and I guess now that Lotus Symphony is freeware (see link), IBM/Lotus pretty much got tired of competing against M$ Office/Open Office:

I still use the old Lotus diary (organizer) at home, which I believe is part of Lotus Smartsuite. Although it's 1995 it runs fine on XP. Somehow I've never found a diary I like so much.

There are some users. Look at Lotus SmartSuite forum, http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/ssforum... (accessible by major browsers) and XpertSS, http://www.xpertss.com/.

I use it still myself (basically WordPro). Being retired, will hate to learn a new product (and WordPro is still the best). SmartSuite can be made to work on Vista and 7.

Yeah, if an old product does the trick why not stick with it, especially since later products have often only changed by the addition of bloated and pointless gimmicks.

However, don't do yourself down - this statement "Being retired, will hate to learn a new product". After all you have obviously learned to use Win 7 which can hardly be described as an old product. Retirement does not induce learning difficulties. I've been retired for about 20 years but it hasn't stopped me helping on this forum, or restricted that function to old operating systems. The "basics" haven't really changed a great deal since W95, depite what some folk seem to suggest.
