Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) and Lotus

Sales guys, more details if you sell to governments.
Stop the FUD, let them know we are approved!

Technote is here

Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) on Windows® XP and Vista is a mandate issued by the U.S. Federal Government. The most current versions (and future versions) of IBM® software products that are deployed by U.S. government agencies need to be able to install and run on Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista Enterprise with FDCC settings.

Lotus Notes

The following Notes® Basic and Notes Standard clients are supported in the FDCC Desktop Configuration on Windows XP:

Install by Administrators only.

Lotus Notes® 6.5.3 (and later)
Lotus Notes 7.0.3 (and later)
Lotus Notes Basic 8.0.1 (and later)
Lotus Notes Standard 8.0.1 (and later)

Lotus Domino Web Access
