Full support for Ubuntu within Lotus Notes and Lotus Symphony is planned with Lotus Notes 8.5 in the second half of 2008. The Lotus Symphony office productivity suite is included with Lotus Notes 8 and is available as a separate download, at no additional charge. Ubuntu is released on a regular six-month cycle in more than 50 languages, and is backed with commercial support from Canonical.

On the Lotusphere 2008 I saw a great tip. It showed how to customise some of the more unhelpful errors on the Lotus Notes clients and make them useful, by replacing the error text that pops up on the client, with something you put in instead.  Very very nice.....

Now you can change the:

 "An error was encountered while opening a window."

 via (notes.ini): Err_2EBB=An error was encountered while opening a window. Please reboot your system.

 to: An error was encountered while opening a window. Please reboot your system.
