Please note - Ndiyo has now officially closed its doors, at least as a legal entity - but we've kept the site alive in case any of the information is useful to others.

Our thanks to all those who helped out and were involved in so many different ways! The Ndiyo legacy lives on in the ultra-thin-client work at its spin-off DisplayLink, at Plugable, at NoPC and elsewhere...

  • DisplayLink, HP & Microsoft do Hubster

    DisplayLink's graphics systems, HP's USB hardware and Microsoft's Windows Multipoint Server combine to give the latest incarnation of the Hubster concept.

    DisplayLink grew out of the original Ndiyo thin-client work, so it's great to see the company returning to its roots!

    For more information, see the DisplayLink site.
