Free Geek Giving Away Computers For Some Elbow Grease

Free Geek, centered in Oregon, is taking old computers that need to be recycled, taking the parts, and putting them in other computers. They have come up with a great idea for people to get a computer they don’t even have to pay for! The plan is simple. You can either work there for 24 hours, or build 6 computers, and they’ll give you your own system. A great way to help out the community and get something tangible out of it at the same time. Because installing a Windows operating system would take money they don’t have, they are using Ubuntu, an operating system praised for being the easiest and most user-friendly Linux distribution. Go to their website for more information.
