Cincinnati, Ohio (PressExposure) September 15, 2011 -- NoMachine, creator of NX remote access software, showed their support of the Open Source software community on September 10, 2011, as a sponsor of the ninth annual Ohio LinuxFest in Columbus, Ohio.
NoMachine joined more than 1,000 members of the GNU/Linux/Open Source/Free Software community from around the world at this year's conference.
Already one of the largest Linux and Open Source conferences in the country, this grassroots gathering attracted an especially large crowd in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Linux kernel. Author, expert, and Executive Director of Linux International, Jon "Maddog" Hall headlined the event as a keynote speaker, and more than 30 other talks and hands-on workshops were also available to attendees.
As part of their sponsorship, NoMachine hosted a booth in the conference's expo area. The software company was there to not only support the Open Source community they have had such a long history with, but to gather feedback as well. "It's important to us to hear what people really need for connecting to remote and virtual desktops," says NoMachine US Sales and Support Director, John Watts. "This is a great opportunity to get their ideas on what's working and what's not, so we can make sure that they end up with the best possible product."
Hundreds of attendees sought out NoMachine's booth to share their stories on the current NX software and learn about the upcoming release of NX 4. NX 4 will expand the power of NX to new platforms, operating systems, and users. New features like USB forwarding, improved multi-media and video support, and broader browser-based access mean NoMachine will have even more to talk about with attendees of next year's Ohio LinuxFest.
