(Cross Platform) Software for Starving Students
I stumbled across Software For Starving Students, while doing research for an upcoming article in the Daily Orange. It's a great resource for students who don’t have extra cash to spend on fancy software applications. The newest release provides software options for both Windows and Mac operating systems, with applications designed to fit the needs of hungry college students.
Frugal students can download the entire software suite or selected programs such as Genuis, a flashcard-based memorization assistance program, or Scribus, a page layout program similar to pricey Adobe products, through the website at http://softwarefor.org.
What I love about it is that this website is for both Mac and PC users, so there's no reason to fight over software :)
