It seems that IBM will unveil today a version of Lotus Notes for Linux.
Based on Eclipse framework, Lotus notes will work on Linux 7.0.1. Code-named Hannover, it is expected to ship next year.
Lotus Notes for Linux will be open-source which means that you won’t have to use a proprietary operating systems such as Microsoft Windows or Mac OS.
Ed Brill, head of IBM’s worldwide Lotus Notes sales, said: “Lotus Notes on Linux was going to come out at the same time as Hannover but we decided to roll it out earlier. There is a lot of market demand now from our customers, especially in Germany, India, China and Brazil.”
If you have Lotus Notes and you want to change your current version into one for Linux, you will be able to do that free of charge. And if you want to buy this latest version you will pay the same price for the Linux version and you would pay for the Windows or Mac version.
