Thumbs up Massive F/OSS Installfest for Schools on Recycled Computers (March 1st)


Untangle and the ACCRC are organizing an installfest to donate hundreds of open source computers to Bay Area schools on recycled hardware. The event will take place on Saturday, March 1st.

http://www.untangle.com/installfest

We Need Your Help!:
  1. Signup and join the installfest!
  2. Help get the word out by blogging about it
  3. Donate an old computer at one of the 4 locations: Berkeley, San Francisco, San Mateo & Marin County

Why its Cool:
  • Helps spread F/OSS (Ubuntu, Firefox, OpenOffice & more)
  • Helps bridges the Digital Divide with underprivileged users
  • Keeps toxic computer equipment out of landfills
  • Is a cool community effort

Whats Being Installed
  • 7.10 Desktop Edition
