Lotus Notes a Social Animal?

I used Notes in a past life and didn't much care for it, at least as far as pure e-mail goes. It was clunkier than my rusted-out '96 Ford Bronco (which is my daily driver). But many people love Notes, especially IBM, which is touting an upcoming version that's a bigger social butterfly than the late Truman Capote. (Remember when social butterflies actually had some brains?)

Project Vulcan, a Notes and Domino technology with no set delivery date, aims to help corporations build their own social networks, both for internal use and customer outreach. The technology also lets employees track who is doing what, a feature similar to the activity streams in SharePoint 2010.

Who has the clunkiest daily driver? Tell us about your jalopy at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
