A friend asked for a favor, wanted to know if I have an old computer laying around, he needs a system to aid in his Web-design course. I quickly remembered I did a system upgrade a year ago when I built my new server. Seeing the opportunity to recycle an old machine, I told him I will be happy to donate the box to him in the condition that everything runs on FOSS (Free Open Source Software). He said yes “I am willing to learn” and so today work begins. I will be putting together hardware (socket 776 -3.0GHz CPU, DDR2-2GB RAM & SATA- 320GB HDD) and then tomorrow I will begin installing GNU/Linux ubuntu 12.04 i386, hook him up wineHQ for running Windows Apps, Kompzer for web-design and a Software Development Kit in case he also wants to learn languages like Python, Java and C. .
