Full Support for Win4Lin Pro Desktop and Win4Lin Virtual Desktop Server on Ubuntu Linux

Sharon Smith writes "AUSTIN, TX -- Win4Lin, the leading purveyor of desktop and enterprise Windows-on-Linux solutions for business, announced today full support for Ubuntu 6.06 for Win4Lin Pro Desktop and Win4Lin Virtual Desktop Server.

Win4Lin Pro Desktop allows Linux users to run Windows applications from the security of the Linux desktop. Win4Lin Virtual Desktop Server is the enterprise/SMB product for delivering Windows applications on thin clients via a Linux server. Both products have been fully tested on Ubuntu 6.06.

"With this announcement of support by Win4Lin, Ubuntu is once more able to deliver class leading solutions, to our customers,” said Malcolm Yates, ISV and Partner manager at Canonical. “Our users can reduce their management effort by maintaining existing applications and moving to Ubuntu for the future.”

"Win4Lin support of Ubuntu 6.06 for both Win4Lin Pro as well as Virtual Desktop Server provides users with the best overall coexistence with Windows in the market", said Jim Curtin, president and CEO of Win4Lin. "This tight cooperation is a boon for users worldwide who have embraced the market-leading features and benefits of the Ubuntu Linux distribution."

Win4Lin Virtual Desktop Server can be used in one of two ways. First, VDS serves as a means to wean a Linux-committed organization from the last few Windows applications by consolidating them onto a Linux server for as-needed concurrent use. Windows can then be gracefully de-commissioned from a convenient central location once suitable replacements are in production. Secondly, organizations with reluctant user populations can use VDS to server Windows desktops in “full screen” mode on top of an end-to-end Linux infrastructure. This allows the organization to reap the many benefits of Linux infrastructure without their users needing to be re-trained in the first phases of the conversion.

Win4Lin Pro Desktop was recently picked as the winner in a LinuxWorld Magazine face-off review against VMware Workstation™ and was the winner of the prestigious LinuxWorld Expo Award for Best Enterprise Integration Product.
