Simply add support to the Sametime client to run under the Ubuntu Linux distribution

I can get behind this one. IBM has installers for RPM based Linux distros they ofer no TAR ball and no .deb installer. I have asked them (IBM) to support .deb many many times. Most of the free world is not using Redhat, or SuSE. Most of us are running Debian/Ubuntu. The huge exposure that Ubuntu is having right now and the list of users growing IBM needs to support Ubuntu. THey support DB2 on Ubuntu, can't we get the Notes Client and Domino on there too?

@1, there is a difference between what non-business and business users utilized for a Linux distro. Businesses will only use a distro that is backed by a known entity and provides fee-based support. At this point-in-time, that means Red Hat and SuSE.

So, although many of our peers might prefer Ubuntu---and for perhaps good reason---until LTS builds are taken-into account, it won't happen. Also, the standard build cycle on Ubuntu is far to frequent for a Tier 1 ISV to touch-it, the the need for the LTS Ubuntu flavor. Red Hat and SuSE both provide an Enterprise model to achieve longer release cycles so major products can work with these OSs.

I support it, but only against the LTS build(s).
