"At Lotus, the plan is to port as many products over to Linux as its customers demand. In December, the company got the ball rolling by launching Domino for Linux. Domino is the company's enterprise server platform for messaging, collaboration, and Internet and intranet applications."

"We've ported Domino over to Linux from the PC platform and it's now a stable port within the Domino family," Jörg Knippschild, senior technology consultant at Lotus Development, told me at the recent CeBIT 2000 show...."

"According to Knippschilde, the decision to port Domino and other products in the future is very much due to "IBM's strong support of Linux. It's one of the driving forces in this scenario. IBM has ported her relational database, DB2, to Linux, and is going to have some other stuff on this platform."
