ThinLinc is a fast and versatile terminal server system. ThinLinc is based on open protocols such as TightVNC and SSH.

The ThinLinc server software runs on Linux or Solaris, and can be used to distribute Linux/Unix desktops to thin clients. The system also supports additional application servers, such as Windows Terminal Server.

This makes it possible to mix applications from different environments on the same desktop. ThinLinc supports redirection of sound, local printers, disk drives, and serial ports, on top of SSH. Clients for Windows, Linux, and Solaris are available.

Additionally, there is a Java Browser Client, a small OS designed to run only the client (TLCOS) and a LiveCD. Client packages for several thin terminals, such as Fujitsu-Siemens Futro, Neoware, and VXL Itona, are also available.

What's New in This Release:
This version includes several new features and many corrections: more than 150 enhancements.
With the new SeamlessRDP feature, applications running on Windows Terminal Servers can now be resized, restacked, and moved, just as if they were native Linux applications.
The sound support has been further enhanced, featuring sound support in the Windows client and the new Polypaudio sound architecture that allows virtually any Linux application to use sound.
Compatibility with 64-bit Linux distributions has been improved.
The Desktop Customizer now supports GNOME, in addition to KDE.
