To which OS should we upgrade our Domino 5.11?

We are running Domino 5.11 on an NT 4 server and we are going to upgrade the hardware and operating system. I would like to know which OS would you recommend and why? We would like to upgrade to Linux, but we have had resistance from management. We have found from initial testing that Linux appears to be a little faster than Windows 2000.
This is a question that only you can answer. It really depends on your environment and what expertise you have in-house. It also depends on what third-party products you use (backup, virus scanning, spam control, monitoring, etc.). If you have the expertise and your products work with Linux, then there is no problem with choosing it as your OS. It is a good, viable choice for small to mid-sized servers. It scales as well as Windows 2000 in most cases, but it cannot scale with the big Unix flavors.
