Very good effort from System76. Let’s support such projects by buying from companies like System76. Moreover, there are very few companies that sell a GNU/Linux distribution preinstalled with their systems, and System76 is one of them. After all, who would want to buy a computer with Windows? Nonsense! Jeez! FFM

System76 Partners with Kids On Computers
System76 and Kids On Computers have partnered to bring computers and open source software to disadvantaged children. Kids On Computers, a non-profit organization, deploys Ubuntu based computer labs in schools and communities around the world. The organization’s first school in Huajuapan de Leon, Mexico, was a resounding success. They now have a dedicated computer teacher and are expecting Internet access very soon. The school went from being one of the poorest schools in town to being the school where all parents want their kids to go!
System76 now offers a "Donate Your Old Computer" option on each product page. By choosing the "Donate Your Old Computer" option, System76 emails you a mailing label to ship your old computer to Kids On Computers. There is a $10 cost which covers a portion of the shipping. System76 covers the remaining shipping cost. Your old computer is tax deductible, and Kids on Computers will provide a donation receipt.
