IBM announces 3rd quarter earnings

From today's announcement, looks like Lotus software is up 8% over last year's third quarter. Quote from the announcement, "and revenues for Lotus software, which allows collaborating and messaging by customers in real-time communication and knowledge management, increased 8 percent year over year."

Looks like it will die a real slow death if it keeps growing like this.

See announcement

great news !
I'm french and i really don't understand your last sentence :
"Looks like it will die a real slow death if it keeps growing like this."

You mean it doesn't grow enought ?

Thanks !
It's sarcasm pointed at the many times critics have claimed "Notes is dead". If Notes is dying or dead, how come profits from selling the software continue to rise quarter after quarter?
Ok, thanks for your answer.

Sometimes it's a bit hard to understand all subtleties like this one for a frenchy.

Great Blog by the way ;-) !
Don't you love how the internet and blogs make the world seem smaller? In American English, we have many slang terms that I know others may not understand. I suppose every culture has them. Many of ours are very strange indeed if taken literally.
