Submission + - Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop 2.5 ready for download

joestar writes: A new version of the Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop 2.5 is now available for download. It adds scalability features for large virtual desktop and application deployment projects. The Ulteo OVD is a Citrix-like Open Source infrastructure software that plugs to an existing infrastructure and can deliver both Linux & Windows applications to users through a web browser, as a desktop or in a web portal mode. The news is available on their web site.

joestar writes: "An Open Source solution for virtualizing user desktop and Windows and Linux applications is now available for download as a 1.0 release. What's interesting in that Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop is that it can merge Windows and/or Linux applications into the same user desktop so that users just don't care. Worth a visit and a download!"

Submission + - Ulteo brings to the web browser! (

joestar writes: "Just announced on their website and now on some news sites: 2.3 can now be used online within the web browser (at least Firefox and IE), without prior download nor install. I've just tried it and they have implemented an interesting way to print documents, as a PDF download. It seems that the Ulteo plateform also offers some realtime desktop sharing capabilities, for training and workgroup. I would love to access all my apps online the same way!"

Anything cut to length will be too short.
