Publish any Windows application onto a Linux desktop with 2X ApplicationServer’s Linux client
London, UK, 27 June 2006 – RedHat, Suse, Ubuntu and other Linux distribution users can now run Windows applications seamlessly on their desktop with 2X ApplicationServer’s Linux client. 2X ApplicationServer is available for free for up to 5 applications at: http://www.2x.com/ras/downloadlinks/
Until now, Linux users could only run Windows applications using Windows simulation software (e.g. WINE). This type of software is typically difficult to configure and only works with a limited number of applications. In addition, this generally would only support older versions. With 2X ApplicationServer however, any Windows application can be tunneled via RDP onto a Linux desktop.
“With the 2X ApplicationServer Linux client, deploying Linux on the desktop becomes more realistic, since you can continue to use Windows applications which don’t have a Linux version” said Niko Makris, 2X President.
