Want a free computer?

    They had such a warm response to their
    holiday giveaway that they have decided to continue giving away the
    software. It is the perfect way to reduce line-ups for the computer
    as spouses, parents, and children battle for a turn.

    Userful’s Desktop Multiplier software turns one computer into many,
    enabling a single computer box to support multiple users at the same
    time. Simply connect an extra monitor, USB keyboard, and mouse to
    your standard computer box and this software makes it possible for
    two users to work on the same PC at the same time.

    “The free two-user giveaway doubles the utility and value of your
    existing computer with minimal cost,” says Tim Griffin, President of
    Userful. “In fact, if you already have an extra monitor and keyboard,
    it’s like getting a free computer.

    Userful is giving away its eco-friendly software to show how much
    un-tapped value lies hidden in today’s Desktop PCs. “Environmental
    responsibility is increasingly on all our minds,” says Griffin.
    “Maintaining an extra PC is a lot of work, and not everyone can
    afford a second home PC. We had such a warm response to our holiday
    giveaway that we decided to continue giving away our software.
    Everybody likes something free, and it doesn’t get much better than a
    free PC with zero environmental footprint. The opportunity to help
    make a difference is very satisfying. We’re hoping that people will
    see how well this software works at home and start recommending it to
    their workplace or school as a way to save the environment and save on
    IT costs. We’ve also added a live CD meaning you can carry it with you
    and transform virtually any PC into a two user computer.”

    Userful’s Desktop Multiplier software can create up to 10 independent
    workstations from a single standard PC box. This software is being
    used around the world in schools, libraries, hotels, and other
    businesses and has provided huge savings on desktop computing costs
    by reducing the number of computer boxes that need to be purchased
    and maintained. Userful is quickly becoming the standard for green
    computing worldwide. Attaching 10 monitors, mice and keyboards to a
    single computer reduces CO2 emissions by up to 15 tons per year per
    system and reduces electronic waste by up to 80%. Userful recently
    stated that in the last year their software has saved over 13,250
    tons of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of taking 2,300 cars off the

    The free two-user licenses distributed under this promotion enable
    users with an extra video card (or a dual-head video card) to add an
    extra workstation by simply plugging in a spare monitor, USB keyboard
    and mouse. Thousands of users have obtained free two-user licenses and
    information about the promotion from

    downloads available: a Live CD, which allows you to turn your PC into
    2 independent workstations without affecting any of the software on
    your hard-disk, and one for users already running Linux.
