Linux in Government: Major Breakthrough in Linux Technology
FreeNX has many advantages for enterprise users in Government. It provides us with an excellent and inexpensive thin client environment. It's fast, and it uses a proven encryption methodology (OpenSSH) that has made it through major FIPS 140 criteria tests in source code form. FreeNX also is available for Ubuntu and Fedora, which are free distributions of Linux that have extensive community support.
Using Open Source Maturity Model criteria, FreeNX and its commercial cousin NX from NoMachine.com provide Linux with breakthrough technology that leaves competitors behind. Let's see what the future holds and if this product grabs the attention it deserves.
