Second attempt at web-based apps

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
IBM is preparing for an attempt to market server-based desktop applications. The Lotus Workplace includes email, word processing, spreadsheet and database applications, all used via a central server and able to run on almost any platform, including handheld devices.

IBM plans to charge customers $2 per user per month for access to the software, plus $1 per user per month for each application, although this doesn’t include the cost of buying the required server software.
