ThinLinX has been developing Thin Client and IoT Hardware & Software for over 14 years. More recently we have transitioned to 100% Software, dropping our hardware development entirely. This allows us to concentrate on developing the best value Thin Client, Digital Signage and IoT Gateway Software for existing high volume hardware such as the Raspberry Pi Zero’s, Raspberry Pi2 & Pi3, Intel Small Form Factor devices, and also a solution to Re-Purpose older PC’s and Laptops

TLXOS is a small down loadable custom Linux based Thin Client / Digital Signage / IoT Operating System which is highly optimised for any recent Intel Small Form Factor device including the Intel NUC range & Intel Compute Sticks. TLXOS supports Re-Purposing of PC and Laptops and also the very popular Raspberry Pi Zero’s, Raspberry Pi2 and Pi3. TLXOS hardware requirements are very low, less than 1GB of RAM and less than 2GB of storage is all that is required to deliver high performance on Citrix HDX, VMware Horizon Blast Extreme and Microsoft RDP / RemoteFX.

Start your trial today by clicking on the Downloads Tab above, select a Download Mirror, click on the Version of TLXOS that you want to Trial. You should also download the ThinLinX Management Software (TMS) which is Free when used with any version of TLXOS. Many Raspberry Pi’s are shipped with a SD Card already installed with the NOOBS boot loader, TLXOS installation is now also available via the NOOBS boot loader. Just boot your RPi Zero’s, RPi2 or RPi3 while tapping the Shift Key, select TLXOS from the OS List, click on install.

During the installation the TLXOS installer automatically Registers the 30 Day Free Trial with the ThinLinX License Server, you must be connected to the Internet with a DHCP Server on the local Network for the Free Trial to successfully Register your device.

TMS is a very powerful, scalable Management Console that allows TLXOS devices located anywhere in the World to be configured, updated via Hotfixes, or have complete Firmware upgrades installed from one central location. TMS consists of a TLXOS client side component and TMS itself, the latest TLXOS client side component is always integrated in each TLXOS release, this may be updated from time to time via a Hotfix. TMS is available for Windows and Linux, TMS is also integrated into TLXADM which is a Free Virtual Appliance used for administration and Desktop Shadowing

ThinLinX has just released a new much improved version 8.0.0 of TMS which has a corresponding new 8.0.0 TLXOS client side which should be installed into the current TLXOS 4.4.0 release to gain access to all the new features of TMS 8.0.0. To install the latest TMS 8.0.0 Client side component into the current latest TLXOS 4.4.0 release simply click on the TMS download Icon, select a Download Mirror, select TMS client 8.0.0. This will download and unzip the new TMS Client 8.0.0 into the TMS / tmsclient directory. To install TMS Client into your TLXOS 4.4.0 releases, use TMS to discover the TLXOS devices, select the devices by clicking on them, then use TMS -> Device -> Upgrade TMS Client to upgrade the TLXOS TMS Client to the latest version 8.0.0

Download TLXOS for a 30 day Free trial, which is available now for the Raspberry Pi Zero, RPi1, RPi2, RPi3, RPi Compute Module 3, RPi Compute Module 1, Intel Small Form Factor devices such as the Intel NUC, Intel Compute Sticks, Gigabyte Brix, Re-Purpose PC or Laptop market, includes an easy to configure Octoblu Gateblu Internet of Things (IoT) Gateway.

The latest version of TLXOS is 4.4.0, ThinLinX is planning a new release TLXOS 4.5.0 for the Raspberry Pi, Intel Small Form Factor Devices such as Intel NUC’s, and Re-Purpose PC & Laptops

Between our Major releases such as above, Citrix and VMware often release updated versions of Citrix Receiver and VMware Horizon Client. ThinLinX creates updates which we call Hotfixes that allow our customers to install the latest Citrix Receiver & VMware Horizon clients. Hotfixes are also created to update the TMS client which runs inside of TLXOS, this enables us to release new versions of the TMS Client that add the extra capabilities provided in the new versions of TMS

ThinLinX has just released new Hotfixes for Citrix Receiver 13.7 for the Raspberry Pi, Citrix Receiver 13.8 for the Intel Small Form Factor devices and Re-Purpose PC. ThinLinX has also just released new VMware Horizon 4.7 client Hotfixes for the Raspberry Pi, Intel Small Form Factor and Re-Purpose PC

The performance delivered by these new updates is exceptional, with our customers able to choose between Citrix and VMware infrastructure by simply selecting Citrix HDX or VMware Horizon as the Protocol choice in TLXOS

Dual screen capability is available via TLXOS for Intel Small Form Factor Devices and our Re-Purpose PC & Laptop solution. Dual screen is coming to the Raspberry Pi via our Raspberry Pi Zero Citrix only option. A US$5 Raspberry Pi Zero or a US$10 Raspberry Pi Zero may be used for this Dual screen option. In other news we will soon be offering Citrix RTME for the Raspberry Pi
