Freedom Toaster to allow user uploads

Filed under
Misc

The Shuttleworth Foundation's Freedom Toasters are set to receive a content-sharing upgrade, which will be music to some users' ears.

Up until now, Freedom Toasters have essentially been open source software vending machines – enabling users to burn open source software and content onto CDs and DVDs. Lead developer, Jason Hudson, says they now want to encourage a two-way flow of information through the project.

"We're now enabling the Freedom Toaster to allow for the upload of information from users," says Hudson. "We're looking at having USB slots available, so that [users] can either plug in their iPod, or USB key, or any sort of storage device that the Linux system can read," says Hudson.

The first milestone will be a Freedom Toaster built to allow users to share music.

These are the things I’ve noticed within the first few hours of the update. There will be more. Read more
