IBM IBM has announced an open-source desktop, running Lotus apps and Firefox on top of Red Hat or SUSE Linux. It's based on an internal project which has deployed Linux desktops to several thousand IBM staff, in what IBM said was one of the largest corporate Linux roll-outs to date. It added that its Open Client Solution can also take in Windows and Mac users, as there's Lotus software for those as well - although it admits that the Mac version of Notes 8 isn't due until later this year.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Outlook doesn't even have an NNTP client, so that is not a valid point against Notes in favor of Outlook.

Yes it does actually, given that Outlook is merely an extension of Outlook Express (well, Outlook being a stripped down version), then sure, it uses Outlook Express, but its better than the completely and utterly broken one included with Notes.
