Two IBM love letters in one day

Today I received two 'love letters': 


1. An offer to buy an IBM  Express server for SMBs.... comes with Microsoft Small Business Server - yep with Exchange...no option for Domino.


2. An email from IBM telling us we can no longer sell renewals on DB2 software because we aren't certified. Our Vault products supports DB2 and it is one of our preferred databases.


Can you feel the love ?

Dude ... that sucks. I mean totally sucks. I'm stunned but not sure why.

Freakin' unbelievable! Can you imagine Microsoft offering to sell their SMB package with a Notes/Domino option? No way!

This is verging on obscene. I would be soooo pisssed off if IBM came to me and offered an MS solution! Someone needs to have a little "talk" with the IBM folks there in Aotearoa.
