Userful to exhibit demos and give free licenses at Cebit 2011

by Liam Britten

Calgary’s Userful, a company that provides Linux-based virtual desktop solutions, is taking their show on the road by exhibiting at the Cebit trade show in Hannover, Germany.

Userful will be demoing and giving away free software licenses of its MultiSeat software, which can turn a single Linux computer into 11 workstations for educational or business purposes. With the addition of individual sets of peripherals, all 11 users can use various programs as needed, saving organizations, institutions and companies valuable infrastructure dollars.

At Userful’s educational price rate, it costs just $59 per seat with an 11-seat set-up. Other licenses are more expensive. Over 750,000 have been sold of MultiSeat, including 350,000 to Brazil, where they have allowed for the economical teaching of computer science in even the most remote areas of the country.

With over 4,000 expected attendees from over 100 countries, Cebit is a great opportunity for Userful to expand its profile to potential new customers. The five-day conference, from March 1–5th, celebrates technological innovation and creativity, with a focus on ICT and telecommunications, digital media and consumer electronics. This year’s theme is “Work and Life with the Cloud.”
