Citrix Client Supports OS/2



Email
February 1, 2001 —  Technology pundits have been proclaiming the death of IBM's OS/2 Warp operating system for years, but it's not dead yet, as evidenced by Citrix Systems Inc.'s new ICA client for OS/2.

Available now in beta, the OS/2 ICA (Independent Computing Architecture) client lets workstations running OS/2 run Windows and Unix applications hosted by Citrix's WinFrame and MetaFrame application servers.

The new OS/2 client is being written to be compatible with Citrix's ICA version 6.0 protocol, which was introduced along with the company's MetaFrame 1.8 Feature Release 1 server software.

The first beta of the Citrix OS/2 ICA client (www.citrix.com/beta-os2) began in January. A second beta period will commence in March, the company projects.
