Today, the Designer only runs on Windows. Provide also a version that can run on Linux.
Graphical user interfaces (RDP, gnome, X11) to Linux are commonly used these days.
Enabling this would serve a couple of purposes:
In development scenarios the project could save the cost of a Windows terminal server – the ApplinX developers could all log in to the same Linux and run their designers – and even use the same local Tomcat/web framework for ApplinX/Web development.
In scenarios where Linux is to host the ApplinX server program – the admins and developers would not need to install ApplinX Designer on their own laptops – and keep those updated at the same level as the ApplinX server program on Linux.
Some customers frown on personal Windows workstations with admin rights – or would like not to have to consider the ApplinX Designer as part of their Citrix roll-outs.
|Use Case||No need for Windows footprint when selling ApplinX.|
