If it has a screen, you can get toyour information. IBM Lotus Notes has very few requirements when it comes to the computing platform of your choice. And best of all, they all work together in a mixed environment. Microsoft Windows 10 and Windows XP. This is a personal choice as it applies to a Small Business and shouldn't be taken as a general advice.
|The R9 client has without a doubt a most intuitive interface. Customizing the Notes Workspace takes a few clicks and all the essential information is on the desktop. Learn more about the features at IBMs Lotus Notes page and follow the Featured Capabilities.||
|This is how I work: "I'm running four workstations side by side, all with Lotus Notes R9.01 on Windows 7 and Windows 10. I have a Laptop when I'm on the road and a Blackberry. I also use an iPad. When I receive email, I have the choice to read and reply from any of the devices. All my updates reflect virtually instant on the other devices."|

Developing applications with Lotus Notes
There is one Designer client to develop client and server applications. Customized and new applications may require the Lotus Notes Collaboration license. Please read the licensing information on the IBM website.
You don't have to be a programmer to make changes to existing applications or create new ones. Powerful functions similar to the ones you use in spreadsheets can make the difference between information and knowledge. If you are a programmer, you will like the Eclipse based Development Client.
Express Licensing for different platforms
Lotus Notes is licensed per configured user. A user id is associated with one user, and it can be installed on as many devices as needed. If you have a PC in the office, a laptop and a home PC, this is considered one license as long as the same id is used. Running multiple instances is a supported configuration, even when the client software is not the same release or system (MS Windows in the office and Mac OS at home).
