Sure students are strapped for cash, but schools are too. What a great little set of tools for educators as well.
How's that for a late Christmas present. Enjoy!
"Windows and Mac only: Software for Starving Students has released a 2007 edition of its collection of freeware and open-source software.
The collection includes well-known gems like 7-Zip, Audacity, Blender, and OpenOffice.org--all stuff you can easily get yourself, but here the legwork is done for you. Plus, it comes with an easy-to-use installer. The idea behind the project is to give students (or anyone else) a single CD containing all the software they'll need to be productive."
