Gartner just published a Q&A document covering some of the questions they received around Lotus Notes and Domino at their recent Symposia events.  The questions are provocative, but reflective of the inquiries that Gartner is receiving around the future of Notes/Domino in the market.  The answers make a few key points clear: that migration is costly and typically not justifiable, that IBM will continue to deliver Notes/Domino in the foreseeable future, and that Notes/Domino 8 is delivering benefits (and wins) in the marketplace.  Thus, this is an important report -- while balanced and challenging IBM in a number of places, the overall point is clear -- Gartner is not pushing customers to migrate to Microsoft.

It's a copyrighted report, though only US$95 to acquire if you are not a Gartner client.  I don't have distribution rights so you'll want to check out for the report.
