2006-07-06

New generation PXES converts PCs to thin clients, centrally manages connection settings and runs Windows applications seamlessly

Frankfurt, Germany, 6 July 2006 – 2X today announced an innovative upgrade and new name for its popular PXES Linux thin client: 2X ThinClientServer PXES edition 3.0. This edition boasts a completely new architecture, which includes a server component allowing for central management of the connection settings and the thin client OS. The new architecture makes migrating PCs to thin clients and subsequently managing them, much easier and enables desktop virtualization.

"Existing PXES users can upgrade at no charge to 2X ThinClientServer PXES edition and get central connection management, support for new hardware and integrated support for running Windows applications on the thin client desktop," said Niko Makris. "With 2X ThinClientServer PXES edition, any company can experience the advantages of server based computing and desktop virtualization without investing in hardware or software."

Integrated support for running Windows applications

Integrated into 2X ThinClientServer PXES edition is the Linux client of 2X ApplicationServer, which allows any Windows application to be tunneled onto the Linux thin client desktop. Administrators can centrally control the Windows applications a user, or group of users, can run - on the Linux desktop!

2X ThinClientserver PXES edition is completely free and supports connections to Linux or Windows terminal servers. A commercial version of 2X ThinClientServer remains available and allows for connections to Citrix terminal servers.

The combination of a Linux desktop with Windows applications allows for tremendous time savings for administrators:
• No more patching of desktops
• No need to deploy new or updated software on desktops
