Notes confused IBM staffers
I once worked on a project with IBM GS where we supplied some functionality to protect a Notes backend. We were explicitly told in the kick-off meeting that they wanted to see our bit working ASAP as they knew they could get Notes working. Our bit was stood up and fully working in under an hour. Took the architects from IBMs Notes/Domino group 2 days to get Notes working to the point we could do integration testing.
I think that pretty much says it all.
