Bill Gates spoke at last week's Office Developer conference on a range of topics.  One interesting bit comes in the Q&A at about the 1:07:00 mark, in response to a question about licensing:

We've driven Exchange penetration up substantially over these last couple of years, talking about from 55% to 75% market share on Exchange.
A colleague and I just listened to the webcast a couple of times to make sure we didn't mis-hear this....

So is this another example of Microsoft's "say it enough times and it will be accepted as truth" approach?  I've never seen a market share report in our market that substantiates this.  As I've mentioned previously, Gartner indicates that IBM Lotus is #1 in e-mail/calendaring in their last published report, at 46% share worldwide.
