Computers to be Recycled, loaded with FOSS and donated to Schools

Thanks to an event that Untangle is organizing, schools in Northern California will be getting recycled computers loaded with a bunch of FOSS goodies.

The event, Installfest for Schools, is happening on March 1st in four Bay Area locations:  San Francisco, Berkeley, San Mateo and Novato. Volunteers will be helping to install Ubuntu 7.10, including OpenOffice, as well as Untangle's Open Source Network Gateway on recycled hardware from the Alameda County Computer Resource Center

If you're interested in volunteering or want to learn more, you can get more details, and sign up here.  

A very cool effort by the community for the community. 

Pau for now...
