KWLUG along with the Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter of Ubuntu Canada and the Working Centre held a Software Freedom Day celebration at Kitchener’s Kwartzlab hacker space last weekend.

KW Linux Users Group presenter Raul Suarez made two presentations explaining the Software Freedom concept.

The Working Centre donated refurbished computers loaded up with free software for users to try out. You can’t beat the purchase price of $20.00 for low end machines to use for the purpose of a learning box. Especially when you take into account that extending the life of this equipment in this manner is a great way to divert hazardous waste from our landfill sites.

Free software community users routinely share and teach one another useful skills, and Saturday offered some cabling tips. Being able to repair or upgrade cables is another good way to keep a home computer set up in good shape.
