I've seen a few different organizations over the years that are using Notes.  
In some, everyone loves it; in others, everyone hates it.

In my observations, it was clear that those who hated it just used it as a 
calendar and email client; they never use Notes for what Notes is designed.  
Those who love it, use the databases and so forth.  Their use of Notes 
includes integrated use of most of it's capabilities.  In these cases, they 
don't seem to feel overwhelmed either, as they use Notes the way it was 
designed to operate.

No matter which side of this fence you find yourself on, it's clear to me that 
Notes is a very different kind of application.  I think it has great value to 
many people and organizations.

I would love to see a native Linux Notes client (Domino has run on Linux for
