Linux Runs Windows Applications with 2X ApplicationServer

RedHat, Suse, Ubuntu and other Linux distribution users can now run Windows applications seamlessly on their desktop with 2X ApplicationServer's Linux client.

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.

2X ApplicationServer tunnels any Windows application onto remote desktops, including a Linux desktop, without the need to install the application onto each user's machine. This saves significantly on administration and support.

2X is offering a free 5 application license of 2X ApplicationServer for Windows Terminal Services availablehere. Organizations can install applications onto one central server and use 2X ApplicationServer to seamlessly tunnel up to 5 applications per server onto remote desktops.
