IBM's Steve Mills keynoted LinuxWorld today, and he used the opportunity to talk about the IBM Workplace Managed Client...

Steve Mills, IBM's top software executive, sent a clear message during his keynote this afternoon at LinuxWorld that IBM's is ready to take on Microsoft with its Workplace managed client. ...

Next Mills gave a couple of customer case studies that touted the benefits of IBM's Workplace managed client, and then called a colleague on to the stage to demo the software on two screens, one running Red Hat Linux and the other, Windows.  Noteworthy among the plug-ins and functionality was the "Activity Explorer," which changes up the idea of how collaboration is initiated. Rather than centering on e-mail or IM, it puts awareness in context around activities such as shared documents.
The Linux story for the Workplace Managed Client is a strong one...and the one that will put Notes on Linux  (might want to check out Jeff Eisen's comment in that thread).
