Hope For All Learning Center Update

Caring Compy installed two computer at Hope For All Learning Center. We later found out that the teachers and students love the software that comes bundled with Edubuntu Linux! Here is a list of applications that were bundled. We also included an addon that accommodates younger children.

When we are able, with the help of more donations, we will be setting them up with a terminal/thin-client environment using the Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP). This will enable us to keep even the oldest of computers in use because a server will be running the central desktop whereas the other computers will be simply clients to display graphics and play sound that comes from the server's desktop environment.

We'd like to thank Eric Marden for his help with this. One of the two computers donated were was his and we really appreciate his support.
