Ubuntu saves the day

We have been using Mandrake 8.? to install on the recycled computers. This is challenging for us (the students and I) as we are still on a very very steep learning curve with Linux. It was almost too much of a challenge.

Our Network Administrator recently came across Ubuntu, a distribution of Linux. http://www.ubuntulinux.org/ Well this is just the bees knees for a computer that will be used for basic office and student type tasks. It installs very very easily and comes with Open Office and Gimp already installed. Our learning curve suddenly seems manageable again.

Our thanks to him also for using his personal adsl link to get the cd for us. That certainly saved us a few shekels.
