To R6, or Not to R6?

by Volker Weber


With the release of Lotus Notes/Domino 6 imminent, when are you going to take the plunge and migrate?

If you were among the customers who felt burned by upgrading too early from Notes/Domino R4 to R5, it still stings. R5 was released to meet a target date, not feature and quality standards. IBM says this won't happen again, and promises Notes/Domino 6 will be released "when it's ready."

But by also saying "Notes/Domino 6 will be released in Q3 2002," can IBM keep both promises? Based on evaluation of the current Pre-Release 2 (PR2), there are conflicting opinions about whether the gold release of Notes/Domino 6.0 will be safe and smart to deploy.
