Announcement Â for immediate release. October 2006
Thinstation ver. 2.2 has been released.
The crew behind Thinstation is proud to announce, that Thinstation
ver. 2.2 is available for free download. Thinstation is an Open Source
Linux based thin client operating system that makes a standard PC a
diskless client in a server based computing (SBC) environment. The PC
might be a modern dedicated thin client PC from e.g. Hewlett-Packard,
Fujitsu-Siemens, Neoware or others Â or a recycled old PC (Pentium MMX
with 32 MB RAM or better).
Thinstation supports all major connectivity protocols: Citrix ICA,
Microsoft Windows Server (RDP), Linux/Unix XDMCP ("X"), NoMachine NX,
Cendio ThinLinc, 2X client, Secure Shell (SSH), vt102, tn5250 and
more. Thinstation supports both full screen client access against the
server or a local desktop with the possibility of windowed access to
multiple servers Â even to different server types.
Many client side options are available: Mozilla Firefox web browser,
sound, DVD/CD-ROMs, harddisks, USB storage devices, printers and more.
Thinstation may be as small as 6 MB, but is typically ~8-10 MB (with
client side applications like Firefox, Java etc. the size will
increase beyond these numbers).
Highlights in Thinstation ver. 2.2: Linux kernel 2.6.15, X.org R6.9.0,
Firefox 1.5, Macromedia Flash, SUN Java, rdesktop ver 1.5.0 (for MS
Windows servers) and more.
Thinstation can be freely downloaded from
http://thinstation.sourceforge.net as a build environment (requires a
Linux workstation) or a custom version can be created on-line via the
web interface TS-O-Matic
Live CD is expected to be available late October.
Thinstation is hosted at SourceForge
(http://thinstation.sourceforge.net). The project was started early
2003 by Miles Roper (New Zealand) and has other core members from
Australia, Italy and Denmark.
