Computers to be donated!

Hi all,

I have 2 personal computers (but not a full set) to be donated.

First of all, the computers are to be running Ubuntu Samiux Remix or Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Edubuntu.  And they are not allowed to install operating systems that other than Linux or Unix like.

Secondary, the families should have kids and they do not have any computer at the moment.

Thirdly, the computers are not in full set.  They lack of hard drive, keyboard, mouse and monitor.  Any other member at this forum can also donate the said missing parts?

Lastly, the computers are not fast in speed but they are less than 2 years of use.  The power consumption is around 90-100w including monitor and speaker (much less than faster computer).  The following is the configuration of the computer that to be donated :

- VIA C7-D CPU 1.5GHz
- 2GB DDR2 RAM (max.)
- 100Mb LAN interface
- tower case

Your suggestion and idea are welcome!

Samiux

P.S.  There may be two more computers to be donated in the near future but not now!

No, I won't.  As they would install Windows system on it.

Sounds strange, as you said:
And they are not required to install operating systems that other than Linux or Unix like.

Do you mean they are NOT allowed to install systems other than Linux or UNIX-like? OR do you mean they do NOT require any non-Linux/ non-UNIX system to work?

須要 及 可不可以 ?

我明白樓主意思,既然捐得部機,如果使用者走去裝老番就無意思啦。咁不如用下Free Software好過。

Hi Samiux一直做既事都非常可敬。小弟之前都想攪義務回收舊電腦送俾無能力既家庭,當中需要檢查回收返黎既電腦有無問題,而且要知道可以用到幾耐。

但學校用既教既software全部都係Windows environment下,學生好難唔用Windows,否則佢地得物無所用。

Samiux兄會唔會考慮launch D免費course俾小朋友學下你套Linux distro?

I am planning to do some presentation for Ubuntu / Ubuntu Samiux Remix in the near future at very low cost.  I need to rent a place to do so, so the course fee should be just cover the rental only.

Update :
I have some successful stories revealed that Ubuntu only system works.

(1) a 50+ lady re-formated her Windows XP box to install Ubuntu Samiux Remix who is using it happily.  She then introduced to her 2 daughters who were studying in overseas.  Later, her two daughters use Ubuntu / Ubuntu Samiux Remix most of the time even doing their homework.

(2) others stories are similar and worthless to state.

難聽啲講,你捐得出嚟預咗人地會剷你個 Linux 裝老翻... 除非你 provide 埋 course 上門教佢。
但咁做不如捐去社區中心,然後同社區中心合作搞 training。

有冇諗過捐去d中小學 (母校 )  作教學用度(試驗性)or比學生試玩目的為左推廣Free Software
如果校長發現原來一部十年老機用起黎同現時學校既電腦差唔多 , 仲要Software全free 我諗都幾有意思
(之前Apple好似都有咁做過)
我諗d tech staff仲開心..比學生用既話,admin linux應該比admin Windows黎得easy


捐去家庭我覺得真係好難restrict佢地 唔比用Windows 加上依家間間學校有電腦借用,even借laptop番屋企. 政府好似又有呢d計畫.
