When will IBM create it's own version of the Microsoft Exchange Connector for Notes? Even though one exists by Microsoft, it is intentionally bug-ridden and support for it is even worse. Also, the documentation for their connector only describes how to move to Exchange, which is useless for migrating to Notes.
When will IBM make its own product and give it to anyone buying new Notes licenses and provide the same high quality support for it that you do for other products? This will make it easy to move to Notes and will demonstrate IBM's commitment to migrate customers to the Lotus platform.  This would help in merger situations and coexistence situations intended to be permanent.  I have seen a company switch from Domino to Exchange simply because they couldn't get good connectivity to it's subsidiaries that use Exchange.
The current connector product from Microsoft does not support Domino 8 and probably won't for years to come. That is because anyone using Notes 8 has no good reason to migrate off Notes and it would just facilitate  migrations AWAY from Microsoft's products and Microsoft knows that.

About half of our company uses Notes and the other half Exchange. Having a shoddy connector resulted in dumping Notes as a mail platform. The upper execs got fed up with issues and pulled the plug. If IBM had provided a reliable solution, the incentive to standardize on one platform would not have existed.
