Well, there is that angle as well. One can hardly carry around their favorite SCC tool and force an employer to either adopt it or interface to it at the client level.

However, I do believe this is an interesting discussion in it's own right and regardless of whatever tool an employer forces one to use...

For example, don't even get me started on IBM and the Notes email client fiasco, what a POS that thing was (and for all I know, still is.)

But point is (and at least as of when I was at IBM) that's what one was given and it's what one used...

What used to crack me up about Notes is that it used to hang (crash, otherwise become unresponsive, etc) all too frequently.

And when it did, there were on the order of up to two dozen little file turds it left in the file system and it COULD NOT be restarted (at least in any usable state) until all those little file turds were either patched up or deleted.

It got to the point where, in order to support internal users and allow them to get work done, they internally distributed a little tool whose only function was to delete or otherwise deal with all those little file turds so that once Notes hung and one rebooted (if needed, which was also all too frequent) one could run the file turd tool and at least start and use their email client again!!!!
