It’s Lotusphere Monday… So here we go, FUD, FUD, FUD…

Good old positive Microsoft…  Instead of focusing on its own positive messages about such wonders of software development as Exchange and Sharepoint, we get to Lotusphere Monday and what comes out of Redmond?

The usual depressing, negative, hot air-filled, splurge of FUD-focused anti-Lotus messages!!  

From CNet’s news.com:

Lotus Notes is one of Microsoft’s favourite punching bags.

It’s a frequent target at Microsoft’s partner conferences and sales meetings. Want more sales, go after Notes.

Microsoft is set to announce an updated set of tools on Monday aimed at helping even larger businesses–those with hundreds of thousands of mailboxes–move away from IBM’s software and onto the Microsoft products.

That’s important, Cain says, because while moving e-mail and calendar functions to Exchange is rather straightforward, “the complexity lies in migrating things like groups, archives, and contacts, and of course, Domino applications.” Microsoft’s tools, he said, help fill in some gaps and offer an alternative to fee-based tools from vendors such as Binary Tree and Quest.

So, as always, I’m sure we’ll see some useless tools that won’t do the job, that lead customers down dead-end failed migrations, increasing licence costs and towards ever greater vendor lock-in…


For goodness sake, Microsoft, move on…  Let’s see some innovation instead of the same tired old thinking?  Perhaps you could even show us a roadmap or two?
