IBM IBM's Lotus Software division is taking a bigger bite of Apple's Mac OS X. The company on Dec. 28 formally rolled out the latest version of its Lotus messaging software package, dubbed Notes 7.0.2, which will include e-mail, calendar management tools and instant messaging that is specifically designed for Mac OS X users.

Oh boy! The same old garbage! We use Notes/Domino and not just for email. And the thing is a breeze to install and administer. I have two Domino servers running on Linux and they work great. If you happen to love Outlook you can use it with Domino for email etc, just fine.
Yes, I agree that the underlying structure (API) etc. is a bit complicated with formula, Lotuscript, Java and Javascript, but hey - you get full backward compatibility back to V3, at least.
As for the crashes - they did happen in V4, less in V5 and now in V7 they are almost nonexistent.
The great thing about Domino is that you can do almost anything with it.
Plus it has a Linux client, though not really production quality ATM - see my blog:

And the new client will be based on Eclipse and will have support for Opendocument built-in.
