| The donated computers were equipped with Linux 
| operating systems and free educational software.

Linux is for doing, not socializing 

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux does fine as it is. With Linux, I have been 
| able to get a lot of work done. In schools, in 
| businesses and at home. Things are getting done. 
| Tasks accomplished.
| They are getting done at a lower cost, they are 
| getting done With less oversight required. They are 
| getting done without any idiot who took a programming 
| class nailing it with a virus or other malware.



Students rehab old computers for families in need

| ââThey like ... learning how to set up a computer with an operating system 
| and software,â he said. 
| In the coming weeks, Bollinoâs students will be working with Chris Gregan, 
| founder of Aptenix Open Desktop Consulting in New Market, who offered to 
| teach students about open-source software.  
| Open-source software allows free access to applications equivalent to systems 
| such as Windows XP, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Office. 



Welcome To "Kids Without"

,----[ Quote ]
| This organization was founded in Helena, MT on Oct. 3, 2006 with one simple 
| goal in mind. To provide computers to families who can't afford them while 
| recycling used computer hardware which is donated directly to the 
| organization...  You would be suprised.... After testing the hardware we
| pop in a CD with http://edubuntu.org on it.... Then when the system
| boots.... The machine is tested by my kids and if it passes this check list 
| it's ready to be distributed....
