2010 Ubuntu Computers for Schools

Secured donated computers from Omega Optical and Chroma Inc.  that were bound for the dump for use in Neighborhood Schoolhouse’s grades 1-6 . The company’s IT staff installed the free Edbuntu version of the popular open source Ubuntu operating system when they secured their computers for recycling. ‘

This was a win, win, win

  1. Win: The powerful Ubuntu operating system enabled these older computers to run fast and be stable for several more years with no software licenses costs.
  2. Win: Saved the company a dump run and computer dumping fee.
  3. Win: Resulted in HR sending photos we took (example below) to employees of their old computers being used in schools.
