The first labs were a bit of an experiment as to what the organizations needed. For the first twelve computers we installed Webconverger, a light-weight version of Linux that boots into a full screen Firefox web browser. From the organization’s perspective, the computers were worry-free; simply turn them on and they worked. However, the needs of White Buffalo Youth Lodge have evolved and they are now looking at teaching resume writing classes on the computers. Although Google Docs would probably serve the purpose, they would prefer a desktop word processor.

Big thanks to MLT.com for donating this second batch of computers, they will be put to good use in the community.
