Help me learn to love (or at least tolerate) Lotus Notes. Are there any features as a user or administrator you like?

What's something to like about Notes? Either for a user (me) or an administrator (my comrades in IT), what are the features that might keep a company using it? I'm willing to suffer a little inconvenience if there are reasons truly for the greater good.
Work uses Lotus Notes 8.4. I've been automatically forwarding emails to a gmail account so I don't have to deal with Notes and can integrate work emails and calendar into my other digital workflows. This may be coming to an end, because:
- Notes autofills my gmail address when other folks at work sends me messages;
- recipients see that I send messages from gmail; and
- a coming new work policy might prevent forwarding.
I like using gmail because I can share calendars with folks outside work and sync to Outlook (and Apple Mail and WebOS and others) pretty painlessly. Is this coming to an end by switching to Notes?
(Or, the hope against hope--based on my research--is that I could find a way to continue forwarding, use the gmail interface, AND have no one I communicate with have any evidence that I'm using gmail.)
Help me not grumble too much as I learn to work with Notes.
