Kids On Computers Prepares for Argentina

Kids On Computers Prepares for Argentina

System76 and Kids On Computers team up to prepare computers going to a lab we’re sponsoring in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Computers are due to arrive in June of 2010.

"Village People"

Kids On Computers received hardware donations from several high-tech companies in the Colorado area to support this new lab.  Around 30 laptops and 40 hard drives have been donated.  These laptop shells and blank hard drives were in much need of an O/S and some software.  Open Source to the rescue….Edubuntu, the Spanish install!!

After about 4 hours of downloading, swapping, and testing, these machines are ready to benefit the children of Argentina!  A special THANK YOU to the staff at System76.  Their experience as a Linux based retailer of hardware products  and unique knowledge of Open Source came in handy when we ran into issues!  Check out one of their netbooks, desktops, or servers at

Please help us with shipping costs by donating through the Kids On Computers website!!
