I really hope that 192 million is a good number and does not include 100 million seats from IBM and IBM partners.
Good job IBM on increasing the market share (hopefully). I think that IBM still needs to do a lot more on making Lotus Notes as popular as the other email brand names on the market. Wondering if there is anything going on with the making the Notes express mail initiative. That would be so cool if the Notes Express client existed and was available for a free download. The potential Notes/Domino customers need to be educated when they are in the junior school not when they become CIOs and CEOs and have already made up their mind in regards to what email system to use.
