2X to give away 1 million free thin clients

Offer puts companies on the fast track to thin client computing without
financial commitment

Frankfurt, Germany, 18 January 2006 – 2X today announced that it will
give away 1 million thin clients, in a bid to demonstrate the advantages
of thin client computing, allowing any organization to solve the
management and security issues of fat clients.

“Thin client computing is the only solution for effective management of
desktops. The free thin client offer allows companies to familiarize
themselves with the technology and to prepare for the deployment of thin
clients,” said Nikolaos Makris, 2X President.

Obtaining the free thin clients

The offer is available from The first
200,000 visitors are entitled to a free 5 thin client license of 2X
ThinClientServer. With 2X ThinClientServer organisations can convert up
to 5 PCs (these can be outdated PCs with as little as 32 MB of RAM and
200 Mhz processing power) to thin clients and manage them from a single
web based management interface.

How 2X ThinClientServer works

2X ThinClientServer deploys a small footprint Linux-based OS to old PCs,
new low cost PCs and to popular thin client devices (HP, Neoware, Wyse,
Maxspeed and more). Thin clients always boot the latest version of the
OS from the ThinClientServer. The thin client OS is write protected for
maximum security.

Hardware & users’ connection settings are managed centrally

Hardware & connection settings such as Terminal Server name, type (RDP,
Citrix ICA or NX), screen resolution and more, can be managed centrally
via the web-based management interface. There is no need to push out
these connection settings to the thin client devices, because they are
retrieved when the user logs on. In addition, connection settings can be
linked to Active Directory/LDAP usernames, groups or OU’s
(organizational units) or to a thin client device, further reducing the
administration involved with managing users & thin client devices. More
