Notes Client 6.0 All Platforms


This is more a marketing question but I'm not sure where to place this question?

I'm placing this question as an avid Notes supporter. My concern is that Outlook/Exchange is winning the email war even in established Notes accounts. This puts huge pressure on established Notes applications. There only seems to be two alternatives for IBM/Lotus:

1. Fight back with an agressive, highly funded marketing campaign to increase NotesMail 6.0 installations.

2. Develop tight integration with Outlook/Exchange and provide developers with powerful integration tools. Once done, it's equally important to convince the world that Notes apps can effectively co-exist with Outlook/Exchange.

I believe that both 1 & 2 should be pursued.

I've been with Notes since 1990. I've seen a number of promising Lotus products that died because of ineffective marketing. I don't want Notes to suffer the same fate.

Am I the only one who feels this way?
