Windows 8 final and IGEL LX/OS Version 4.10.100 thru RemoteFX

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Hello Folks,

today i’ve tested the fresh Windows 8 Enterprise final version together with the IGEL LX/OS Version 4.10.100 thru an RemoteFX connection.

It works perfect for me and i was not able to find any issue at the moment, so i can recommend this solution.

Windows 8 Start Menu thru IGEL Linux RemoteFX sessionWindows 8 desktop using Aero thru IGEL Linux RemoteFX session

Click on the screenshots to expand, as you can see i’ve used a window based session but it works fine with a fullscreen session too.

Iam looking forward to the Windows Server 2012 final releaseĀ and to check out how this works… šŸ˜‰

Cheers
Michael
