new migrate to Domino redbook

Though like 4 years past since I've last done some serious Domino administration, this is a cool draft redbook to have in view, should you get sick of Exchange and its requirements for more and more processing power, memory and HDD storage just to have ... mail
The last buzz is that Exchange 2003 requires 64bit Windoze machines to run on, otherwise it won't install. Suppose you have Exchange 200x or whatever current version and you want to evaluate the new/bragged Exchange 2003. Suppose you didn't bought 64bit servers because you didn't have to.

Question: can you evaluate Exchange 2003 ?

Answer: probably not. Sic !

So, you'd probably want to evaluate Domino 7, then go get the Migrating from Microsoft Exchange2000/2003 to Lotus Notes and Domino 7 redbook and get rid of Exchange.

On the other hand, if you don't need other than simply mail, why installing Exchange or Domino, you'd be better with *nix mail servers, at least they're reliable and won't request 64bit CPUs hardware.
