Lot's of great  buzz around the messaging space with the run up to IBM's Lotusphere.  Lotusphere is kicking off on Sunday.

Here's a neat  Computerworld article about where the PR "rubber" meets the Gartner analyst "road":

"Au contraire: Exchange's lead over Notes actually 'getting bigger and bigger,' says Gartner"

"While IBM argued today that its Lotus Notes collaboration software was turning the tide against the market leader, Microsoft Corp.'s Exchange, a Gartner Inc. analyst said that's not the case.

"I don't believe that in either revenue or user seat share, that IBM is closing the gap [with Microsoft]," Tom Austin, a Gartner analyst, told Computerworld today. "The gap is getting bigger and bigger."

IBM did not immediately respond to a request for comment."
