"Free Software, The Environment, Social Welfare, and the Digital Divide"

James Burgett, of Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC) will speak at the Bay Area Linux Users Group, which is held, at the Four Seas Restaurant in San Francisco.

James will recount the path ACCRC has taken as it's grown in the last five years to refurbish unwanted computers and other electronic devices that people donate. The ACCRC gives computers computers they refurbish to individuals and worthy organizations without charge or strings. ACCRC uses Linux on the systems it gives away and has developed quite a bit of expertise in installing various Linux distros on various (old) hardware.
