Despite the vague road map, Microsoft's Thompson took a shot at rival IBM Lotus, saying it doesn't have a clear road map.
Ed Brill, who examines rivals' technologies as manager of Lotus' competitive project office, fired back: "I don't know how he can say we don't have a clear road map; we're shipping Notes 7 in the first quarter next year. They laid out their own road map in very general terms. What is the future? They have their heads in the sand because they had committed to shipping in 2003 Kodiak with an SQL Server back end."
