Rome, Italy, August 4th, 2004 - NoMachine, the creator of NX software, is the latest to be added to the portfolio of connectivity clients in the up-and-coming ThinStation release 2.1.0.
The ThinStation project, which currently is in its late beta, will support NoMachine's innovative NX technology by incorporating the NX Client in its connectivity offerings.
ThinStation is the leading Open Source thin client operating system for x86 hardware and is based on Linux. It is hosted at Sourceforge as
Miles Roper, project leader and developer, said "NoMachine NX technology is a perfect match for the ThinStation concept, which provides high speed and safe communication between thin clients and servers. The ThinStation developers are very excited about this valuable addition and appreciate the close collaboration with NoMachine."
Gian Filippo Pinzari, CEO, said: "NoMachine's policy is to support Open Source projects as much as possible, since the core components of NX technology are OSS. OSS users should not be penalized because they choose to use the software
NoMachine has therefore dedicated a website section for Linux distributions that are not directly supported by NoMachine, but are the result of efforts of testing and integration of the OSS community.
ThinStation is a thin client Linux distribution that makes a PC a full-featured thin client supporting all major connectivity protocols: Citrix ICA, MS Windows terminal services (RDP), Tarantella, X, telnet, tn5250 and SSH. ThinStation can be booted from network (e.g. diskless) using Etherboot/PXE or from a local floppy/CD/HD/flash-disk. The thin client configuration can be centralized to simplify management.
