Because using the web on a cell phone is SO EASY compared to a built in messaging/calendaring application.

Mailbox journaling is not archiving.
Here is what most people mean by archiving. On notes (and now exchange) there's a server side policy/program that runs and moves mail that meets a defined criteria (say.. mail that is over 6 months old) and copies them to a new mail file. The user's can then access their archive from inside the client or via the web by clicking on a link or something and it takes them right to it.
It's really nice from a system administration perspective as it keeps mail file sizes down (increasing performance) on your main servers and you can use a series of low cost/lots of disk space servers as archiving servers as most people will only go into their archive once or twice a year so the load is very low.
The archiving feature alone really fixes a gap in Exchange server. Say what you will, but it's ridiculous that it doesn't have any archiving abilities (and no, localto workstation archiving doesn't count) that even remotely compare to notes.
Really? You know, a reason most people I know drive older cars is because you don't have to worry about car payments and premium insurance. Not saying I couldn't afford it, but it's nice not having to worry about it.
Another (fairly large) reason I, personally, a drive 1986 nissan pickup 4x4 (just getting broken in at 227,000 miles) is because it still gets OK gas mileage,it was all of $1500, and I can fix most anything on it myself. Good luck doing that on a new foreign or domestic car. It's alos become evident - to me at least- that picking up a 80s or 90s foreign car or truck for a few thousand in decent shape and spending a few hundred bucks to fix it every year is a helluva lot cheaper than blowing a ton of money on car payments & insurance.
Oh yeah all these 'ancient' cars still get comparable gas mileage to new vehicles. My Nissan gets around 20 mpg in the city
