Project Focus

  • To provide computer systems to families with school-age children who can not otherwise afford them.
  • Use Xubuntu derivative and include educational applications.

Roadmap: (To do items...in order)

  • Petition local organizations to donate functional machines. (In progress)

    • prefer 500mhz or greater, and intact. Other specs are variable.
  • Determine central meeting place. (In Discussion)

    • Our supplies are spread out and need to be moved to a central location to be tested and prepared for installation.
  • Develop our Linux package. (In Discussion)

    • use xubuntu derivative that will run on slow machines.
    • try to standardize the package for slipstreaming.
    • Wikipedia mirror? That's over 10GB of data.
  • Locate suitable donation candidates and expand the project. (In Discussion)

Supplies

  • 60 computers
  • 11 monitors (need to be checked)

Topics of discussion:

  • Who can get machines? How many and what kind of Specs?
  • What should our MINIMUM baseline specs be? Most utilities will run reasonably well on 500mhz.
  • What do we want in our Linux Package? Who has the expertise to slipstream this into one install CD?

All of this is in order of priority. I will update this post periodically with important info from the thread.

Packages
