We would like to thank openSUSE for their generous donation to our Free and Open Source IT Tools drop-in. Last week openSUSE, a popular GNU/Linux-based project and distribution, sent us 100 USB flash drives. We will put free software on the flash drives for people to take away to use on their own computers.
There are tools to use for design, photo and video editing, word-processing, spreadsheets, learning, and much more. For anything you want to do with your computer, there is a free and open source application. On the flash drives, we can give you a complete system to try out with no commitment.
To get some great free tools to use at home or at work, come to the Drop-in at Redbridge Library. It is on the first Friday of every month, 1–3pm. Or contact us — we would love to hear from you.
