SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IGEL, a world leader in the delivery of powerful workspace management software, IGEL Linux-powered thin clients, zero clients and all-in-one thin client solutions, today announced availability of a preview release of the IGEL Linux 10 operating system (OS).

“IGEL Linux 10 is changing the game for thin client technology,” said Matthias Haas, Director of Product Management, IGEL. “It enables customers to access today’s most modern devices and endpoint computing capabilities, with the performance and power they demand for accelerated workforce productivity and the security and control IT needs for simplified management. You really have to try it to believe it.”

The new IGEL Linux 10 now features a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) that expands support to the latest end-user devices including many laptop computers and desktop PCs, thin clients and compute sticks. With its enhanced 64-bit OS compatibility, the new version delivers more access to RAM in next-generation devices.

Offering a modernized and customizable user interface (UI), IGEL Linux 10 enables the hardware-accelerated decoding of multimedia content and protocols with supported chipsets.
