We're pleased to announce a new Ulteo product called "Ulteo Virtual Desktop" (Beta) which allows you to use Linux applications on the Windows(TM) operating system.
Ulteo Virtual Desktop is a full Ulteo system that runs seamlessly on Windows and offers a large choice of Linux applications, including the Firefox web browser, Thunderbird email client, OpenOffice.org office suite, multi-IM software such as Kopete and many others.
It also offers all Ulteo features that are already available with the Ulteo Application System. This includes automatic system and application updates from the Internet and document synchronization accross all your user's Ulteo systems.
It's been designed for individuals and corporate users who want to have Linux and Windows applications together on the same desktop without the hassles of dual booting or virtualization.
Once installed, the Ulteo Virtual Desktop offers a special menu that can be used to launch a choice of well known open source applications.
Ulteo Virtual Desktop uses special technology built on the top of coLinux. It offers performance close to a native installation on the hardware because it uses no virtualization software.
Applications can naturally access the user's documents in "My Documents". Sound and printing are also supported on the fly.Learn more about the Ulteo Virtual Desktop:
