Userful Turns DisplayLink Docking Stations Into Full-Featured Computers

Transform Your DisplayLink USB Docking Station Into An Additional PC

CALGARY, AB, 15 Dec 2010 –  Userful today kicked off its hardware and software partnership with DisplayLink by demonstrating the simplicity of making a Universal USB Docking Station with DisplayLink USB virtual graphics inside into an additional computer station. Using a dock, keyboard, monitor and mouse with an existing notebook, netbook or PC and the Userful MultiSeat Linux 2011 software, any system can now quickly be turned into two.

Additionally, Userful is offering all existing DisplayLink technology-enabled USB docking station customers a free two user version of the MultiSeat Linux 2011 software. The software can be installed as a dual boot, enabling customers to use it without overwriting their existing Windows system. More information about the promotion can be obtained from

Today, in another release, DisplayLink and Userful announced a technology partnership that will allow schools to deploy large numbers of Linux-based computer stations in the classroom for very low cost. Working in conjunction with DisplayLink USB virtual graphics technology, the Userful MultiSeat Linux 2011 software turns one Linux-based computer into up to 11 high-performance independent computer stations, ultimately giving students the features and computing experience of a full PC, but at a fraction of the cost.
