UK Nonprofit Ubuntu Linux Test

As part of the East of England Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) project, funded by the UK government’s ChangeUp programme, 10 desktop computers using Ubuntu Linux were distributed to non profit organisations in the East of England Region for testing and evaluation. The resulting feedback by the organisations involved has now been published online and is available on the project’s website at http://foss.ciac.org.uk .

The East of England FOSS project was last week awarded the first "Open Technology Gold Award for the VCS" by the national FOSS in the VCS project. The award was presented by Nicola Thompson, Head of the National ICT Hub for the VCS at the ICT Hub East of England Regional Conference.
