Software for Starving Students

Software for Starving Students is a free collection of programs organized for students (but available to anyone). We’ve gathered a list of best-in-class programs onto one CD (one disc for OS X, one for Windows), including a fully-featured office suite, a cutting-edge web browser, multi-media packages, academic tools, utilities and more.

Note that you’re downloading a virtual disk image, not physically getting a disc. You’ll need some sort of disk image emulator. The OS X version is ~648MB, and the Windows version is ~675MB. And take advantage of the torrent link, would ya?
