6.5 Linux Client

Why does Lotus represent supporting Mozilla on Linux as Rich, cost-effective collaboration for Linux clients? Ken mentions the 6.5 Linux-based client and the Press Release tells us that 6.5 demonstrates a complete end-to-end vision for collaboration on Linux, and extends to both client-side and server-side software.

In other passages it is clearer that this is browser-only support, but the message is murky. On purpose, or not? I have already had someone tell me there is a full Linux Notes client coming in October - BZZZZT, try again.

While I'm having a little whinge - since when is browser-based mail & calendar considered collaboration. Is this a new use of the word collaboration with which I am unfamiliar.

And what is the deal with supporting Mozilla only on Linux.
