Domino 9?

Strong hints abound that Domino 9 has now been committed to, and that IBM have booked the Swan/Dolphin hotel complex for Lotussphere 2006 and 2007.
Compare and contrast:
  • Microsoft Exchange - roadmap now torn up and not open for discussion. Next version not even discussed publically. The SQL version shelved indefinately.

  • Domino - version 7 public beta open, and version 8 committed to.
So. Is Domino Dead ? No. Not at all. It'll keep evolving, but statements from within IBM/Lotus keep saying things like "Yes, Lotusscript is still supported in domino 8", etc, etc.

Another 10 years of Domino, folks ?
