"When I talk to a Linux cynic," says Greg Kelleher, "the first
thing I ask is 'Have you seen Linux lately?' " The challenge
in the question posed by Kelleher, Lotus product manager for Domino
on Linux, is characteristic of the famous passion Linux developers
have for the open-source operating system. It is also a
well-informed opinion about the enormous strides made by the Linux
community in developing an enterprise-ready system."
"When we went to market with Domino for Linux about a year ago,
we first tested it on the 2.25 Linux kernel. We got 50 to 75
concurrent Notes users on a server. Now we are getting 400
concurrent Notes users on a Domino for Linux server using the
updated 2.25.17 Linux kernel. With test builds of the 2.4 kernel
candidate, we are getting 900 concurrent users. All in a year,"
Kelleher says. "We got in early. We beat a lot of other companies
to the punch."
"But when Lotus began to develop for Linux a year ago, it
could have been called an act of faith. Now that faith looks to
Kelleher like good business sense and a straight-forward move to
support the Lotus heterogeneous platform strategy, a strategy that
makes Domino available on all major server platforms."
