The new 2X Mac client enables Mac OS X to run Windows applications and desktops remotely

Dallas/Irving, USA, 20 May 2008 – Apple Mac OS X users can now run Windows applications seamlessly on their desktop with 2X ApplicationServer’s Mac Client. The 2X ApplicationServer is available for free for up to 5 connections at:


Until now, Apple Macintosh users could only run Windows applications installing local virtualization software such as, VMware, Parallels or Apple’s Boot Camp solution. This type of software typically needs a lot of resources and is difficult to configure. However, with 2X ApplicationServer, any Windows application or desktop can be run via a secure SSL connection from a Microsoft Terminal Server on Mac desktops using any LAN or Internet connection by installing the very light 2X Mac Client.

“With the 2X ApplicationServer Mac Client, we want to address all those companies that use or want to use Apple Macintosh PC’s as part of their IT infrastructure and need to run Windows applications on those machines. Now they can run Windows applications and desktops from any location without installing virtualization software locally” said Nikolaos Makris, 2X CEO.
