Free software turns one PC into two
As school leaders look for inexpensive ways to extend computing resources to every student, a Canadian company says it is giving away software that turns one computer workstation into two.
Userful, a privately held company based in Alberta, makes software that allows a user to connect an extra monitor, USB keyboard, and mouse to a standard computer box, making it possible for two users to work on the same PC at the same time.
Userful’s software giveaway now makes it possible for a user to get this software for free. The free two-user licenses, which originally started as a Christmas promotion, allow computer users with an extra video card (or a dual-head video card) to add an extra workstation. The company offers two free downloads: one that allows the user to turn his or her PC into two independent workstations without affecting any of the software on the hard disk, and one for users already running Linux.(leer más…)
