IBM has a pilot program to see if their staff would like Macs. Apparently 86% of the pilot group elected to keep the MacBook rather than suffer Vista. It also seems that Lotus Notes is headed for the Mac and iPhone.
IBM’s software strategy is also embracing the Mac platform, with a new version of Lotus Notes and an integrated package of office productivity software based on OpenOffice and branded as Lotus Symphony being slated for release for the Mac later this year. Support for Notes email and calendaring on the iPhone and iPod Touch is also reported to be in IBM’s plans.
