This virtual appliance is based on handpicked openthinclient packages. It features a new kernel environment (2.6.28) with support for lots of new hardware (e.g. Intel Atom based boards). After downloading and starting the VM you can quickly boot the first thinclient over the network.
The virtual machine runs with Ubuntu Linux Version 10.04 LTS as the base operating system. The file format used for this virtual machine is the Open Virtualization Format which is designed to work with several virtualization platforms like VirtualBox or VMware vSphere/ESX/Server/Workstation.
The openthinclient server virtual appliance is based on OpenSource and can be used without limitation of duration or enterprise size.
