I've heard murmuring to that effect before (specifically, the Rich Client 
Platform portion of Eclipse), although I've yet to see anything concrete. Not 
that I don't expect it to happen (Notes already has some Java components, at 
least to the point where it bundles it's own jre/jdk and has a Java 
logo/symbol on the splash screen), but my impression of Notes is that it's a 
pretty big beast, and I don't think a complete port to anything would go 
without a fight.

Having said that, it's hard to know how long Notes for Linux has been in 
development, and Notes certainly has been used on other platforms before. 
Either way, native Notes for Linux isn't here yet, but neither is Wine 1.0.
