This is probably heresy, but it's time for all Notes Client apps to run inside of a browser.  Most organizations are trying to web-enable or migrate all client-only apps and this would provide a very easy pathway -- no migration. 
IBM - if you want to keep Lotus/Domino around, please create a web-client plug-in for these old, moldy applications.  Thanks!!

Technically it is not that hard to do. Just create a plug-in and ActiveX that surfaces the Notes client. What do you gain? Nothing since you still need all the client code deployed (inside the plug-in instead of the exe). But you invite tons of problems around plug-in management.
Face it: the UI going forward is HTML - and XPages Domino's path.

Now if you would suggest: have a local XPages server running as Daemon or Service so I can access Notes XPages apps local to be independent from the network...

You will get a lot of votes

Amusing to me that so many demoted this one and it's now a viable product that many people appreciate. Sure, it's limited in scope, but it works for what it does, with an opportunity to grow.
