World's largest Linux migration gets major boost - Computerworld

World's largest Linux migration gets major boost - Computerworld: "The world's largest Linux migration is speeding ahead, with the German national railway announcing today that it has successfully moved all of its 55,000 Lotus Notes users to the open-source operating system.
"This strategic choice is further proof that Linux has matured as a strategic enterprise platform offering a variety of advantages like cost savings, shorter development time and a high level of security," said Steve Menadue, European vice president for IBM's technology group. "IBM continues to deliver strong support for Linux across all of IBM's technology platforms as still more companies look for simple, safe and cost-effective enterprise computing.""

IBM claimed, at Lotusphere, that the R7 Linux version of Domino will have > 200% performance/throughput improvements relative to R6.x.
