Userful says it's giving away its Desktop Multiplier software, which turns one computer into several. The company says all you need do is connect an extra monitor, USB keyboard, and mouse to a computer box, and the software lets more than one user work on the PC at the same time.

Why are they giving the software away? “Everybody likes something for free, and it doesn't get much better than a free PC with zero environmental footprint,” says company President Tim Griffin. “We hope that people will see how well the software works at home, and start recommending it to their workplaces and schools as a way to help save the environment while cutting IT costs. A so-called ‘live CD' lets you transform almost any PC almost anywhere into a several-user computer."

The software can create up to 10 independent workstations from a single standard PC box. The company says the software is already being used in schools, libraries, hotels, and businesses around the world. Download a free two-user license.
