I have made contact with a local charity who are soon to create a
facility of a few PCs for use by their clients.
I am not aware of a Ubuntu related group which has such an interest -
comments would be welcomed.
My knowledge of software for such users only brings to mind
proprietary software (on windows). The charity has a small
organisation which is apparently only familiar with windows, and is
taking advice from another charity which ultimately is heavily funded
by a well resourced very large software company (ms).
I will do my best in the cause of Ubuntu however, it its a bit
unlikely that there will be a major culture change just because I
happened to walk through the door today.
A related question:
If I happen to be successful, they will need some measure of support,
ideally several part time volunteers. Is anyone in the bracknell area
who would be prepared to help a charity with Ubuntu on a free basis or
very low rates?
