http://fridge.ubuntu.com/files/edubuntu-kids-thanks-small.jpg (http://fridge.ubuntu.com/files/edubuntu-kids-thanks.jpg)Edubuntu (http://www.edubuntu.org/) - Ubuntu’s educationally slanted spin-off - has helped a British nursery to make use of two donated PCs.

“We’ve just installed these two donated computers in a community nursery and breakfast/after schol club in Lincolnshire, England. The machines are 600mhz/128mb/4.2gig and they took about three quarters of an hour to install and configure perfectly, and have cost the centre nothing!
The kids absolutely love them, most are from underpriviledged backgrounds and many of them have never used a computer before. As a result they will grow up computer literate. The nursery just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks for all of the effort and long hours that the community has put into creating this superb collection of software.
Keep up the good work!”
Congrats to the Edubuntu team!
