Green Computing Userful for Everyone

Calgary-based Userful Corporation is setting the standard for green computing worldwide and is giving away software to prove it. Over the holiday season, Userful is giving away the software that turns one computer into two for free.

Need an extra PC around the house this holiday season? Userful is giving away its innovative software that gives you a second computer for free. This is the perfect way to reduce line-ups for the computer as guests, relatives and children crowd your house this holiday.

Userful’s Desktop Multiplier software turns one computer into up to 10 independant workstations, 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. Userful’s software is being used around the world in schools, libraries, hotels, and businesses and has provided huge savings on desktop computing costs by reducing the number of computer boxes that are needed. 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 claims 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 road. Sounds like a Christmas gift for the whole planet.
