IBM has developed an open desktop product that supports a range of applications, such as email and instant messaging, without the need to run Microsoft Windows.
On Sunday, IBM announced details of its Open Client solution. It incorporates a range of applications, some from IBM's Lotus family, and runs on the two major strands of corporate Linux, Red Hat and Suse, as well as Microsoft Windows and, soon, the Apple Mac.

I started reading this thread thinking that this was what it was about. So I just had to add.
My company was burdened with Lotus Notes for many years, and it was the biggest bottleneck in the entire company operations. Nobody was sad to see it go.
I guess the big question is, 'do you need to have the Lotus infrastructure in place to make use of this new Open Desktop?'
