We are excited to announce our next project! We are working with Silverton Senior Center to help them put together an open source computer lab!
We are excited about this project for a few different reasons:
- Open Source software will save them thousands of dollars in lifetime software expenses
- Available administration tools (such as built-in administrative authorities coupled with great add-ons like Ofris) require a small fraction of administrative time (maintenance and upkeep) compared to Windows systems
- Linux reliability often means likely less downtime
- and of course, because we are using a lightweight operating system, we can reuse older computer systems, saving thousands in hardware costs and conserving environmental resources!
