Rome, Italy, Oct. 14, 2008 – NoMachine, creator of NX software for application delivery, remote access and hosted desktop deployment, was among many sponsors of the sixth annual Ohio LinuxFest on Saturday Oct. 11, 2008 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio LinuxFest is one of the largest regional Linux Shows in the United States and drew in over 1,000 Linux and other OSS followers this year.

The Ohio LinuxFest started in 2003 as a inter-LUG meeting and has grown into a large, free, grassroots conference where Free and Open Source Software professionals and Linux enthusiasts gather as a community and share information. This year's show hosted speakers like Jon “maddog” Hall, Joe Brockmeier, Jono Bacon, and Esther “Moose” Filderman. Other attractions included a large expo featuring sponsor exhibits and a .org pavilion of non-profit, Open Source, and free software projects.

Attendees gathered at the NoMachine booth to discuss the trends, benefits and challenges in delivering X applications from centrally managed terminal servers. Jeff Kalberg of NoMachine USA says, “It was a classic community show where technologists could share technology war stories and exchange ideas on ways to make for a better life in the technology fast lane. It was also a valuable opportunity to demonstrate the power of NX.” Kalberg continues, “the conference gave us the opportunity to meet  people from organizations that have never had the chance to experience the power of NX. Most of them voiced their opinions about the shortcomings of the other solutions currently available on the market and how the adoption of cost-effective high-performance application access had now become fundamental for many companies, both small and large, around the world. Being able to talk face-to-face with our engineers and see NX in action convinced them NoMachine's NX was the solution they were looking for."
