    Western PA - Pittsburgh Area - Help needed

    from an email....

    Today, ComputeReach wants to expand with PCs with Edubuntu. Through Goodwill, they have the pipeline of PCs and a shop to bid them with. Through Western PA Linux User Group, they have Linux-savvy volunteers. With the help of these volunteers and Goodwill employees, they have an image based on Edubuntu LTS and loaded it onto a PXE server. I personally have met with Dave and his team several times over the past 8 months. These folks are hungry for Ubuntu and see the benefits of Free Software.

    ComputeReach has 3 groups requesting Edubuntu in their schools. They need to get things rolling with the help of the Ubuntu community to fulfill these requests before the end of the year.
    Sounds like a great project!

    Not sure if this is still pertinent, but I live up in Erie, and I'd be interested in learning how I could help.
    Also, I checked the site, and it looks like they're using donated Macs.
    Lmk what the status of this is.

    They are trying to move to Edubuntu, as the quoted email states.

    They probably won't update their website, until 'try' becomes done.

    So, if you can/want please reach out to them!
