Ulteo release Open Virtual Desktop
Ulteo has released Open Virtual Desktop, a platform for delivering Linux and Windows applications from servers to the desktop. The software allows applications from Windows Server Terminal Services to be seamlessly mixed on the virtual desktop with applications running on Linux servers. The desktop itself is available from a web browser and can run on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
Ulteo, founded by Gaël Duvall, founder of Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva), and Thierry Koehrlen, had previously launched a version which only supported Linux application servers, but did allow for central management of the applications available on users desktops. A full list of features and an installation guide are available. OVD is licensed under the GPL2.
