Press Release Summary = Convert PCs to thin clients & manages them & thin client
devices from any vendor

Press Release Body = 2X ThinClientServer V3 deploys a secure, centrally managed
Linux desktop which runs any Windows application via RDP.

London, UK, 23 May 2006 - 2X announces the release of 2X ThinClientServer v3, which
aims to solve the Windows desktop management hassles by controlling what Windows
applications users can run via a small foot print, secure Linux desktop.

Linux on the desktop may finally happen - without the user knowing!
2X ThinClientServer deploys a Linux thin client OS with integrated desktop to PCs
and thin client devices and allows administrators to centrally control not only the
devices and connections, but also what Windows applications a user or group of users
can run.

For example a user that only needs Microsoft Word and Internet Explorer, will only
see these applications on the XP-like desktop. These Windows applications will be
tunneled to the desktop via either 2X ApplicationServer or Citrix Metaframe.

"Users are indifferent to having a Linux or Windows desktop - they want their
favorite Windows applications. What is interfacing with the computer hardware is not
important,\" said Niko Makris, President of 2X Software Ltd.

Reducing Network administrator headaches
Using 2X ThinClientServer v3, administrators are in complete control of what
applications are run on the desktop, eliminating the following repetitive tasks:

* No more patching of desktops
* No more checking for rogue applications on the desktop
* No need to deploy new or update software on desktops
* No more need to re-install XP
* No need to back up data on desktop machines
* Unauthorized use of removable media (USB sticks, Ipods) impossible.

In addition, the need to invest in, learn & manage the following software becomes

* No Anti Virus needed on the desktop
* No Anti Spyware needed on the desktop
* No USB/CD ROM device control needed on the desktop
* No desktop management software needed
* No desktop backup software
* No need for Operating system updates - No new VISTA licenses needed!

Dramatic savings: No Vista upgrades or Anti virus software needed
"The potential savings are dramatic: Not only can companies save significantly by
cutting out the Microsoft VISTA upgrade cost (purchase & installation), they will
also save by not having to buy anti virus software, backup software etc for the
desktop" Said Nick Galea, CEO of 2X Software Ltd. And that's just a small part of
the savings: Companies who deploy this technology will benefit from reduced enduser
support and allow network administrators to concentrate on other aspects of the
network. Companies will have better security and reliability."

2X ThinClientServer pricing is based on the number of thin clients on the network.
Prices start from as little as $595 for up to 25 thin clients to $9595 for up to
1000 thin clients. The price for 5 thin clients downloadable from is absolutely free!
