Network World's John Fontana asked for Mike Rhodin's response to this week's Bill Gates comments:

Lotus has no intent to back off its stated commitment to provide backward compatibility for all Notes applications regardless of reports to the contrary this week from longtime rival Microsoft.

"If others are misinformed, that's fine, but the reality is the statements I am making are the ones I am holding my team accountable to and are the ones my customers are holding me accountable to", said Lotus General Manager Mike Rhodin, after last week's annual Notes user conference in Germany.

In January, Rhodin stood in front of 6,000 attendees at the company's annual Lotusphere conference and emphatically declared that there would be continued support for all Notes applications.
Rhodin also comments on this week's announcements, and the general theme of innovation.
