Emphasizing its commitment to deliver access to the broadest range of enterprise-class applications, Tarantella, Inc. today announced the Tarantella RDP Client for Linux software. The first commercially supported RDP client written to Microsoft's RDP specification by a Microsoft licensee, the Tarantella RDP Client for Linux will provide Linux desktop and thin client terminal users with standard RDP-based access to Microsoft Windows applications via Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services. In addition, the Tarantella RDP Client for Linux also functions as a full client to Tarantella Secure Global Desktop Terminal Services Edition software product.

"Tarantella has been delivering innovative enterprise software to the Linux community for over 5 years," said Tarantella's Chief Marketing Officer. "The Tarantella RDP Client for Linux is the perfect bridge for the Linux desktop user to Microsoft Windows applications. Previously, users had to rely on RDP clients that were either unsupported or reverse-engineered. The Tarantella RDP Client for Linux gives enterprise users the confidence of knowing their access to mission-critical Microsoft applications is backed by a commercially supported client that is fully compliant with the RDP specification licensed from Microsoft."
