Ubuntu for desktop PCs public library in city of Boom

Filed under
Ubuntu

The public administration of the city of Boom is using Ubuntu for ten new publicly accessible desktop PCs in its public library. The Boom library is not the only public library in Belgium using this GNU/Linux distribution.

For those who want to install Ubuntu or OpenOffice on other computers, the library is making installation disks available.

According to the explanation on the municipal web site, the PCs in the public library are used not just to access the Internet. "High school and college students are using USB keys to work on documents. They will be able to use OpenOffice, a worthy alternative to Microsoft Office, which includes a word processor, spreadsheet application and presentation software."
