Linux Without Borders
This E-list is dedicated to discussion and implementation of the
vision that in countries whose citizens are not yet rich enough
to own Personal Computers(PCs), computers must be *shared*; and
that the way to enable sharing while preserving individual
privacy is to install Linux, a multi-user, multi-tasking
operating system, on PCs owned cooperatively, or by businesses.
This will enable citizens to establish their own accounts on a
commonly owned, or rented, computer, where they can do all the
things that citizens of wealthier countries can do: write, do
accounts, and -- perhaps most important -- use "their" computer
to communicate with other people, in their own country and
throughout the world.
