"Lotus's R5 version of Domino for Linux represents a major
advancement for Linux. Domino is a Web-based application serer
thatincorporates a sophisticated database and messaging system.
While it can serve static Web pages and access database servers
well enough, Domino's forte is in providing a platform for custom
applications. Its third-party support is second to none, and almost
every Domino application will run on the various Domino
"Domino is also one of the premier collaboration platforms,
besting Microsoft Exchange and Novell GroupWise. Originally
accessible only via Lotus' proprietary Notes client, the Domino
applications and database are now accessible via a Web
browser. The Lotus Notes client, which runs on the Macintosh
and Windows platforms, will work with the Domino for Linux server,
but it has yet to be ported to Linux itself. Along with being a
superior developer and user interface, the Notes client also has
the advantage of being able to run standalone."
"Initially, you can set up Domino as a mail, application, or
enterprise server. The mail server provides basic mail and calendar
support, while the application server allows additional
applications to be run on Domino. The enterprise server provides
more sophisticated clustering support."
