Los Angeles/Munich - 2021-04-06
The world has so many devices which are good for Internet browsing, but may lack the security and regular operating system updates. By transferring your desktop into the cloud, you get the latest software and updates on the device you want to use. So we looked for a partner to provide the Manjaro experience optimized as a service via cloud computing.
Today, we are happy to announce our partnership with shells.com, a virtual machine pioneer based in the U.S. Shells, headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, is a desktop as a service (DaaS) provider focused on closing the digital divide by providing a simplified solution for developers, schools, small businesses, and the masses. With the ability to set up their machines in less than five minutes with the operating system of their choice, as well as servers strategically placed around the world, the company ensures customers have a seamless virtual desktop experience.
Together we bring the future of computing to everyone. Using an internet-based method to turn idle screens - smart TVs, tablets, older or low-spec laptops, smartphones, and more - into fully functional computers, the Shells service facilitates learning, working, and creating from anywhere.
Linux operating systems have always been well-known to the tech savvy, but remain relatively unknown to the general public with a desktop operating system market share of only around 2%.
“We hope that Shells can help lower the barrier of entry for the new user to try a Linux operating system with our easy-to-use product. Although Linux operating systems may already be widely used in many industries and enterprises, the adoption of Linux for personal use is not as widespread. We hope to open doors to new users with Shells so they can see the power and benefits that Linux brings to computing. We have enjoyed working closely with Manjaro as we have similar aspirations and look forward to giving current and future Manjaro users the ability to take their desktop with them on any device,” said Shells CEO Alex Lee.
