I dont think there is an upgrade path from 4.1 to 5 as both runs different OS's (4.x runs Windows while 5.x runs Linux). 4.x development will continue as I also dont think Cisco will discontinue Windows versions so soon, as there is a wider deployment base. I have heard rumours that CM 5.x will be out some time this quarter. Lets keep our fingers crossed!
It is not exactly Linux. Or at least you will not be given full access to the root. think appliance. like the IDS boxes.

When we spoke to our regional account rep, we were told that Callmanager 5 will be available in two versions: Linux and Windows.
