CIO reports, "The cost of running Lotus Notes is killing a lot of companies. Companies like Virgin Atlantic are still going ahead with Notes-to-Exchange migrations because it's seen as worthwhile."

Wait a minute, though. Both Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange have pretty sizable TCO.

Ed Brill, Director, Lotus Software, IBM Software Group, points out that the writer is founder of a firm that "has a focus on delivering migrations of e-Mail systems from Novell GroupWise and Lotus Notes to Microsoft Exchange."

Got to agree with Ed here. "A little full disclosure normally would go a long way." The moral of the story, I guess, is to Google your contributors before the readers do.
