New Distribution: Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 Trusty Tahr with X2Go

Dear Customer,

We offered you the Server version of Ubuntu 14.04 on the same day that it was released. We are now offering you the Desktop version with remote desktop access.

As with the previous Desktop versions (10.04 and 12.04), we haved based it on the X2Go suite in order to offer you a comprehensive, powerful and easy to use remote desktop.

Due to the GNOME 3 incompatibility with X2Go, as well as some feedback requesting increased agility and ease of use, we have chosen the Xubuntu version with the Xfce desktop environment this time.

To use it, you will need the X2Go client which is available here for Linux, Windows and Mac:
You will need to configure this client using the following guide:

This version of Ubuntu is a Long Term Support (LTS) release and will benefit from updates for 5 years. Version 12.04 with GNOME will also remain available until 2017.

This distribution is currently available from OVH in beta version, please do not hesitate to leave us your comments here.
