Amen

The highlight of an interview with Jeff Jones of IBM Analyst Relations:
What are things you would change?

I would rewrite PowerPoint to allow no more than 10 charts in any presentation. I would rewrite Notes' calendar feature to disallow the creation of meeting invitations that lack at least five sentences of explanation as to the purpose of the meeting. I would also remove the recurring meetings feature of Notes' calendar.

I don't mind the recurring feature so much. (Although when I worked for a vendor, I did accumulate a lot of pointless weekly meetings over time so I know where he's coming from.) But "no more than 10 charts." Yes!
