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. .
As from April 2013 I will be offering cheap migration for those wishing to join the (FOSS) Free Open Source Software Community. For only R500 I will backup and restore you data into the faster, stable, efficient and virus free Unix/Linux ubuntu OS.
For those wishing to keep their proprietary software designed only for MS Windows, don’t worry there are other techniques we can use to have them running in your Unix/Linux ubuntu set-up. Why must you stick with MS Windows if you pay for everything and get attacked by all kinds of viruses out there.
If you are interested in joining the free community, just inbox me on firstname.lastname@example.org, in the e-mail please stat what the primary use of your system is and include the hardware stats of your system e.g Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz @ 4GB RAM with 1TB HDD
COMPUTING MUST BE FREE……
