Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

I came across this blog from the Razor at the Sydney Morning Herald in Sydney, and thought it was fairly apt?

Now that we have MS on the cusp of being able to provide an enterprise Mobile push email solution it seems like they are very much in the driving seat? I have always been hearing numbers bandied about regarding Exchange and Notes being almost 50 - 50 with somthing like 120 Million or so users each?

At the end of the day I personally feel that Outlook as a Client is very intuative as well as tunable to how the user wants to use it? Where as Notes on the other hand seems clunky as a last generation has-been by comparison. There is no taking it away from Notes that it excells at scalability and adaptability at the back end (it can even run on AS400 Hardware etc.), but at the front end, it fails dismally - as Razor mentions in his blog "Imagine a program used by 120 million people, of whom about 119m hate it".

Now if MS could just get Exchange 2003 SP2 to act as the front end for Notes we could really have something?
