I wanted to stop by and introduce myself and my organization. My name is Ken Starks and I am the Executive Director and Founder of Recycled Electronics and Gnu/Linux Used for Education.
We go by "Reglue". It's a whole lot easier than our full name. We were formally known as The HeliOS Project.
We've been providing financially-disadvantaged Central Texas kids donated and refurbished computers since 2005. Of course, these computers are powered by Linux. From 2009 to the first of this year, we've used a modified version of Ubuntu or Mint on these machines. Turbulence at the upper reaches of these organizations and the complete failure of UCK and Reconstructor led us to the door of OpenSuse, particularly the Education-Life spin of OpenSuse. The Studio tool allows us to easily make needed modifications to the ISO on the fly. Since the people that volunteer for us are largely non-technical, this was an important factor.
As soon as the new Evergreen version rolls out, we will begin deploying OpenSuse on the majority of the computers placed by Reglue. It's a pleasure to be a part of this community and I hope that we are able to reciprocate in some way.
