Filed under
PCLOS

Connection via the school network worked perfectly as did linking to the roof mounted video projector. (Connection to the projector has proved difficult with some other distros.)

One group of 15 year old students were so impressed on the OS on display, that 6 of them produced USB sticks and we pasted a copy of the (previously downloaded) ISO for PCLinuxOS 2010.12 on to each. Having warned them that the learning curve might be challenging but rewarding, I sent them off home with eager anticipation to try out their newly acquired OS.
