Citrix ships SCO and Linux thin clients

Now claims coverage of all major Unix platforms

Citrix has shipped Linux and SCO Unix ICA clients for its WinFrame and MetaFrame servers; the company says it now supports all of the seven major versions of Unix, including Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Digital Unix and SGI IRIX. The new clients will allow Linux and SCO machines to run Win32 applications on NT servers, and are available free of charge as a download from Citrix’s Web site. "With our new ICA clients for Linux and SCO Unix we now support every major version of Unix," said David Weiss, Citrix director of product management. The Linux client, which was developed for RedHat 5.1, is a particularly important addition, given the recent rise in applications support for the OS. SCO is also important to Citrix’s strategy of catering for all major platforms. According to IDC, SCO OpenServer and Unixware accounted for more than 40 per cent of world-wide Unix licence shipments in 1997. ®
