Mac OS X runs Windows applications seamlessly with 2X ApplicationServer

  • 18 September, 2006 23:17

<p>Publish any Windows application onto a Mac desktop with 2X ApplicationServer’s Mac client</p>
<p>London, UK, 18 Sept 2006 – Mac OS X users can now run Windows applications seamlessly on their desktop with 2X ApplicationServer’s Mac client. 2X ApplicationServer is available for free for up to 5 connections at: http://www.2x.com/applicationserver/application-publishing.htm.</p>
<p>Until now, Apple Macintosh users could only run Windows applications using Windows simulation software (e.g. Virtual PC). This type of software is typically difficult to configure and only works with a limited number of applications. With 2X ApplicationServer however, any Windows application can be tunneled from a Microsoft Terminal Server via RDP onto a Mac desktop.</p>
<p>“With the 2X ApplicationServer Mac client, we want to address all those companies that use Apple Macintosh PC’s as part of their IT infrastructure and need to run Windows applications on those machines. Now they can continue to use Windows applications which are not available as Mac versions,” said Nikolaos Makris, 2X CEO.</p>
<p>About 2X ApplicationServer</p>
<p>2X ApplicationServer tunnels any Windows application onto remote desktops, including Mac and Linux desktops, without the need to install the application onto each user's machine. This saves significantly on administration and support.</p>
<p>Obtaining the free version</p>
<p>2X is offering a free 5 application license of 2X ApplicationServer for Windows Terminal Services available at: http://www.2x.com/applicationserver/application-publishing.htm. Organizations can install applications onto one central server and use 2X ApplicationServer to seamlessly tunnel up to 5 connections per server onto remote desktops.</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
