Did I speak too soon? No DB2 in initial ND7 Release?

According to Volker, DB2 as a back end for Notes databases will NOT be available upon the initial release of 7.0. And in the comments, Ed doesn’t really refute them, but says he will comment on his blog. Just when I blog about hoping that IBM will not become more like MS, they go pulling a feature out of an initial release. [sigh] Sometimes I hate being right. Wonder what will happen with “Noteshorn?”
