Userful prepackages Linux and applications for multiseat educational use

A preview version of Userful's Linux MultiSeat 2010 has been made available to potential users.


Userful Linux MultiSeat 2010 is a package built around Userful's software that allows schools to share one computer between 10 simultaneous users.

Based on Userful Multiplier and Edubuntu, Linux MultiSeat 2010 also includes a wide range of open source applications that are relevant to schools.

Company officials claimed the software works with all major USB multiseat devices - including the the HP T100, Wyse E01, NComputing U170, MCT MWS 8820, and MWS 8840 - and gives better video performance than Windows Multipoint Server 2010 on such devices. Standard video cards can also be used.

"With Userful, schools can offer more computer access to more students on existing budgets, and/or have enough money left over to spend on other classroom technology," said Beverley Gallagher, Userful's VP strategic partnerships.

"Plus the Userful multiseat computers are easy to set up and maintain, making them easily managed by nontechnical professionals right in the classroom," she added.

The production version will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010 at $US59 per seat to educational customers.

The underlying Userful Multiplier 4.0 will be released in the same timeframe, and can be used with more than 10 different Linus distros. Like Linux MultiSeat 2010, Multiplier costs $US59 per seat for educational customers or $US99 per seat for commercial use.
