Edubuntu in Schools

This program enables organizations to donate old computers bound for the dump to schools. This is achieved by the installation of the free Ubuntu operating system which simultaneously deletes all data, and makes a computer ready for use by teachers and students for several more years, with no software licenses costs. 

Ubuntu is a safe and fast Linux open source operating system. It works on PCs and Macs and is especially good for older computers. It works like a PC or a Mac, has Firefox for the Web, and Open Office to work with MS Office documents. Ubuntu follows our open source philosophy. Edubuntu is a version of Ubuntu for educators that includes free learning software for grades K-12. We are continually testing Edubuntu on computers at the Graduate School, and at a local PreK-6 school with computers donated by local companies.
