CosmoPOD - Remote Linux
« on: September 29, 2006, 12:43:32 PM »
I am not a linux user, but I found this website that provides a remote linux system for you to try out for free :Thmbsup:
You only need to register for an account and download the NX Client to use it  ;)

There is another one: http://opensource.region-stuttgart.de/test_linux_desktop.php
I am not sure if this one is still working, tried it last time. You can't save your configurations for this one  :)
