    Lotus Notes, like most big-biz enterprise-level apps, don't have a single "Is Good" metric, it depends on your needs and existing infrastrcture.

    Granted, Notes has received a lot of bad-press recently due to poor design, but I hear the new versions are much improved. Also of note, Notes isn't just a groupware solution, it's an application hosting environment, where PIM and Email are just pre-built applications that ship with it.

    I don't know how well it integrates with an AD setup though or its cost-effectivness, but Exchange is definately better for things like that.

    Good notes devs are about as rare a hens teeth. The market here in Texas is about 100k+ a year for a senior guy when Jobs pop up.

    Ibm has pretty cool technology, of course the IDE (Notes designer) is years behind MS is some ways.

    I disagree here. Notes is in fact a groupware/collaboration product with the ability to create composite applications. It integrates fine with AD.

    I worked with Notes some time ago for a project, basicly evaluating it (pull teeth). Needless to say extending Notes wasn't easy at the time. Perhaps now it's been greatly improved.

    I'm not sure how good webdav support is on the Exchange side. I know it supports it, but never had the need.

    I tried to do a remote deployment of Lotus Notes...
    It was a total failure, the installation doesn't do a full install and runs all exe's and dll's from the network. They totally messed up the msi functionality.
