London, UK, 18 Sept 2006 – Mac OS X users can now run Windows applications seamlessly on their desktop with 2X ApplicationPress’s Mac client. 2X ApplicationPress is available for free for up to 5 connections at:
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.
“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.
