IBM bought out Lotus in 1995, but has kept the brand alive, mostly on its Notes and Domino workgroup products. But now Big Blue says it'll be removing the Lotus name from the next versions. I wasn't even positive that the Lotus branding was still around — but I'm wistful to see it going away, and wrote about it over at TIME.com."
