Sikhi To The Max II – the official desktop version
Finally, its here. The much awaited Sikhi To The Max II – the official desktop version has now been released so you can install on your PC or laptop at home – and best of all, its totally free! The sevadars (free volunteers) at Sikhi To The Max have been spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours in the production of this widely used software.
Sikhi To The Max was launched as a beta version at the start of the decade. It wasn’t officially released online, however, the innovative software was much sought after and soon, there were copies floating around everywhere. Now, you can go to almost any country in the world and it’s a certainty that the software is used at some of the Gurdwaras to display and translate Gurbani on projector screens.
