Ubuntu, Zimbra Set to Partner

Take the world’s fastest-growing version of Linux and match it with the world’s fastest-growing open source email platform… What do you get? How about a promising partnership between Ubuntu and Zimbra?

I heard a rumor — well, more than a rumor — from a trusted source that Ubuntu and Zimbra will announce a relationship next week. Together, Zimbra and Ubuntu hope to “put the heat” on Microsoft’s desktop e-mail business.  More details are expected on May 14.
