A press release from Win4Lin:
BOSTON, MA – LinuxWorld Expo -- Win4Lin, the leading purveyor of integrated Windows-on-Linux solutions announced today full support for 64-bit host processors for their Win4Lin Pro products.
Windows-on-Linux solutions are gaining interest as more organizations seek to balance their desktop portfolios to include more Linux-hosted desktops. These desktops suffer from application availability and compatibility without the Windows-on-Linux capability offered by the award-winning Win4Lin Pro.64-bit system support is essential for Windows-on-Linux business solutions as 64-bit machines are gaining increasingly market share.
"IT decision-makers are increasingly turning to 64-bit platforms from AMD and Intel as default choices to build their next-generation computing infrastructure on. Today's announcement positions Win4Lin as the leader in providing virtual Windows sessions on 64-bit Linux-based hosts", said Jim Curtin, president and CEO of Win4Lin.
Increasingly virtualization is being used not only as a consolidating technology, whether desktops or servers, but also as a deployment agent. As organizations begin to position themselves on either side of the Vista upgrade decision, virtualization is emerging as a strategic way to balance the risks of either new systems roll-outs or moving to a more diversified portfolio of desktop environments involving some credible level of Linux desktops.
"The 64-bit x86 processors from AMD and Intel provide the highest, most cost-effective CPU performance and capacity available," said Leo Reiter, CTO of Win4Lin. "We are pleased to say that Win4Lin Pro is now the best way to run Windows 2000 and XP on these popular platforms."
Win4Lin products are aimed at enabling users to more easily embrace the cost, reliability and security advantages of an end-to-end Linux infrastructure, without having to give up, port or re-write viable Windows applications. Win4Lin products run Windows applications with no need to modify the application or the application environment.
Win4Lin business-oriented virtualization solutions allow organizations and individuals to migrate from Windows, or co-exist with Linux by preserving their investment in critical Windows applications. With Win4Lin products, organizations can cost-effectively get ahead of the technology curve by deploying Windows applications in a heterogeneous desktop environment.
