“It’s worth the money asked”

One of the most popular and authority Raspberry Pi magazine called MagPi has recently released a new ExaGear Desktop review. This has also coincided with our 5th-anniversary birthday celebration! So, I decided to make some conclusions and pretend what the future is like…

Yes, the companies have also got their birth dates and the companies also measure what they have passed and what have they got as a result of those years. So is Eltechs with its ExaGear Desktop software which has been helping tens of thousands of users, developers and makers around the world already for 5 years to start x86 applications on ARM-based devices. In fact, it used to be supposed impossible. Or, at least, possible, but with enormous limitations!

Looking at all these 5 years passed we can sum up what we’ve achieved so far. And I would say that a great job has been done by now and still keep on being done. Let’s take a quick look at all those things together.

ExaGear is trusted by users and pros

Back at the very beginning of our way, we became a real synonym to the TeamViewer setup on ARM (Raspberry Pi) Devices helping makers and developers get a remote access to their PIs (or whatever ARM boards they had) which turned out to be an issue of high demand. We received (and keep receiving) a lot of good reviews both from the ordinary users and from the professionals involved. We used to have mentions in such periodic magazines as ODROID Magazine and MagPi (one of the MOST popular magazines among the whole Raspberry Pi community). And to our honor, they have recently presented us with another mention in their fresh MagPi August 2017 issue

In this issue, they also point out what ExaGear Desktop is now. And its new features and achievements are quite impressive. The current new version of ExaGear supports 3D graphics acceleration now, so we managed to start such iconic games as Counter Strike and Diablo II on Raspberry Pi. In their review, the MagPi Team enjoyed playing Eye of the Beholder and Loom. They also were pleasantly surprised by the excellent performance of Noptepad++ on Raspberry Pi as well as the Microsoft Office 2003 applications. Thanks to them for their experiments and if you want to look through all of them, read their article ExaGear Desktop for Raspberry Pi 3 right away. Or just find the full PDF-version of the MagPi magazine here. The most awesome thing in their article was the conclusion: “Exagear is worth its lifetime price…” Real acknowledgment by the real pros. This is what we are striving for every day.
