    How do you like the sound of taking one machine, and having two people logged into it simultaneously? Sounds pretty neat to me – and it’s free too, which is always a tick in the right box.
    Canadian company Userful markets Linux-based desktop multiplier and public access computing solutions – effectively turning one system into an X Window server supporting up to ten terminals. They’re giving away a free 2-user copy of their PC Multiplier software, which lets you have two people simultaneously connected to a single system, but running separate sessions.

    That makes sense. Computers are powerful enough to run multiple users, especially with multiple cores. You could assign an entire core to each user if all they do is browse the web and stuff!
