Software For Starving Students enhances computing experiences by providing an easy way to install free, high-quality software titles via a user-friendly interface.

It includes popular Open Source programs like Firefox and OpenOffice, intended to help students learn about and benefit from Open Source and free software programs. The SSS team put all the most commonly used free programs into one download to make it easier for students to install useful software (including fully-featured office suites, 3D graphic editors and much more) for free.

We created 'SSS' because we love Open Source software and want to help make it more more...

Just a comment, the host mirrors.xmission.com they are using for this file seems to not have enough good bandwidth to host a file this big...download has failed about a dozen times in the last day. I'm using Interarchy so I can resume it, but "starving students" may not have the luxury of buying an app that will resume http downloads. Maybe an ftp alternate link here would help out. Or a suggestion of a freeware app that will do it.

Took me quite awhile yesterday to download the app, I had to stop the download maybe three times (the download kept slowing down) and resume it, with each resumption the bandwidth speed was quite good.

All browsers support resuming downloads.


Use Bit Torrent. 20 minutes instead of 20 hours :)
