Gotta like when we have an advocate cheering us on to take out Exchange...

perhaps what Obama's IT staff should really do is just do a mass replacement of the existing archaic Windows PCs and Microsoft systems with Macs and Linux-powered e-mail servers. For that matter, they could switch back to Lotus Notes on Linux. Lotus Notes Traveler, the mobile Lotus Notes client, already supports Obama's favorite e-mail device, the Blackberry. Last, but not least considering what happened with Bush's e-mail, it's worth noting that Lotus Notes has several excellent archiving programs from companies like AXSone, Open Text and Sherpa.
Technically, Lotus Notes Traveler does not support the Blackberry, but as Lotusphere 2009 attendees learned, the Blackberry BES support for Domino is second to none.  We'll see how this one goes -- obviously this journalist is not the first person to suggest that it would be good to see the new administration flip back...
