<strong>Calgary, Alberta &mdash; Feb. 5</strong><br />Need an extra PC around the house? Userful is giving away its innovative software that gives you a second computer for free. 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 lineups for the computer as spouses, parents and children battle for a turn.<br /><br />Userful&#39;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.<br /><br />”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&#39;s like getting a free computer.<br /><br />Userful is giving away its eco-friendly software to show how much untapped value lies hidden in today&#39;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&#39;t get much better than a free PC with zero environmental footprint. The opportunity to help make a difference is very satisfying. We&#39;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&#39;ve also added a live CD, meaning you can carry it with you and transform virtually any PC into a two-user computer.”<br /><br />Userful&#39;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. 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 percent. Userful recently stated that in the last year their software has saved more than 13,250 tons of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of taking 2,300 cars off the road.<br />
