I can't tell ya much about power, but Domino is just not anything like 
what most of these folks on this list constantly ask about. You'll 
never do a SQL-like query. And those @If commands make me go blind if 
they get any more than one else clause.

On the positive side, if you don't know how to do a SQL query you can 
still create all kinds of database stuff relatively easily. If you can 
find a guru at your place of business, promise a lot of beer and lunch 
if s/he'll help you out. I never could have figured out the stuff my 
gurus showed me. Now I owe them some CSS/DOM instruction! (They didn't 
want the beer!)
