Derick St-Hilaire

Hello there! My name is Derick St-Hilaire, and I’m the Salesforce Administrator here at Devolutions. I’m one of the more experienced employees here at Devolutions, and it has been amazing to see the company and community grow over the years. My primary responsibilities include managing our Salesforce platform, and working closely with our strategic partners and customers. I also oversee the management of Devolutions Force, which is our VIP Advocate Community. Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I enjoy camping, walking my dog, playing video games, and I’m a huge movie fan — including the Star Wars franchise of course. If you would like to join Devolutions Force, or if you wish to get in touch, then you are welcome to contact me directly at


Remote Desktop Manager for Linux Now Available

Back in January in his annual Devolutions Roadmap 2020, our CEO David highlighted our goal of launching the first official version of Remote Desktop Manager for Linux in the fall of this year. Well, despite what has been an extremely volatile and unpredictable year due to the pandemic, I am proud to announce that we are on target: Remote Desktop Manager for Linux is now available! You can find it here (click the Linux penguin icon from the available platforms).

Before we look at some of the features and functions, I would like to extend our appreciation to all of the users who requested an early preview of Remote Desktop Manager for Linux. You provided our Development Team with invaluable feedback. There is no way that we would have achieved this milestone without your input and advice — thank you!

A Final Word

We have rigorously tested Remote Desktop Manager for Linux, and have determined that it is worthy of being shared with the most important people in our lives: YOU, our amazing community of IT pros. However, we do ask that you keep in mind that Remote Desktop Manager for Linux is not as mature as our versions for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS — simply because those versions have been around for several years. Rest assured that our Development Team is constantly working to make improvements and fixes. Your support, input, and understanding are all greatly appreciated.
