This year you're going to see the payoff for all that work and all the overhead associated with running Notes 8 in Eclipse. Usually, either live or shortly after, there is a way to view the Lotusphere Opening General Session. Do not miss this year's OGS. The Notes 8.0 client has a huge potential for new stuff, but you're not seeing too much use of it just yet. I liken it to having a brand new high end sports car that came with a governor set to 55 miles per hour.
This year you'll get to see the payoff showing through. I think those who's schedule has them seeing the OGS second and the Salon first instead, will know when some of the Demo's of near term features are being done. The crowd noise will come through the walls and across the corridors like the 9pm fireworks at EPCOT.
