Unfinished Symphony?

So today, IBM launches Lotus Symphony, a free, open-source "suite" of office apps in an attempt to challenge the dominance of Microsoft Office.

Who remembers the first incarnation? I do, I was working for Lotus Development when we launched "innovative" integrated office app, Lotus Symphony for DOS, back in the mid-80's; remember the hard plastic, strangely shaped, large slip case for all the manuals & (floppy!) disks?

A bit of deja vu occurring for me here!
