"The IBM Client for Smart Work with Ubuntu is being
built on top of Ubuntu 9.10. For applications, it uses IBM's OCCS
(Open Collaboration Client Solution software), which includes both
Lotus Symphony (IBM's take on OpenOffice) and Lotus Notes for
e-mail and groupware.
"You'll be able to run the Ubuntu-powered IBM Client both as a
traditional desktop operating system and as a virtualized desktop.
If you elect to go the virtual route, the IBM Client can run off
either a cloud or servers using Virtual Bridges' VERDE (Virtual
Enterprise Remote Desktop Environment) software."
