You Don't Need an Education to Know Value.

Since the outset of Lindows.com, schools have contacted us asking what kind of programs we had to help them manage the cost of software. For example, recently a school contacted me saying that they had dozens of computers donated to their school, but they could not afford to pay for the software licenses required to turn them on--so they sat there unused. LindowsOS is the ideal solution for that school and many others because not only is it a versatile and secure Linux operating system, but it is also very easy to set up and maintain, so even a novice administrator can get their systems up and running.

Today we're announcing a unique, affordable site license program for educational entities which maximizes their tech budget, gives them access to high quality software as well as a great way to set-up and administer their computers to make management of the of their computers easy. Here's how it works:

1) Schools pay just $500 per year for a site license which covers an unlimited number of computers.

For a flat-fee of $500 per year, schools can obtain a license for every computer in their school. There's no set-up fee and no long-term commitment.

2) Site license includes the powerful, but easy, LindowsOS plus an integrated office suite.

For the one $500 fee, schools can gain access to the latest versions of the easy-to-use LindowsOS as well as an office suite for every one of their computers. Out of the box, LindowsOS is great for Internet activities like e-mail, surfing the web, instant messaging, etc. (that's all most people will need). For those computers that need to be equipped with an office suite to create presentations, spreadsheets or word processing documents, a single mouse-click will load the computer with an entire office suite which will read and write common Microsoft formatted documents including .xls (Microsoft Excel), .doc (Microsoft Word), and .ppt (Microsoft Powerpoint). Both the latest version of LindowsOS as well as the office suite are bundled together for the single $500 payment.

3) Online sign-up and immediate access to the software.

We've put the entire program online so anyone can sign-up and gain instant access to the software. Just fill out one simple web form and gain access to both LindowsOS and the office suite, digitally, so it can be instantly downloaded and put to good use immediately.

4) Easy administration makes setup instantaneous for the entire school.

Our unique program permits an administrator to sign up an entire school from a simple web form. Then, all computers running LindowsOS at the school will have additional access to the site licensed software. Because there is no required login from each computer, the entire school can immediately begin using the site licensed software. There are no serial numbers, activation codes or account information that others at the school are required to know. They simply plug in their LindowsOS computer and have immediate access to the software.

It used to take hundreds of thousands of dollars for schools to outfit their classrooms and labs with computers and the latest software. The emergence of low cost computers, such as those available from Walmart.com, combined with the Lindows.com Educational Site License program means that equipping that 15 computer lab, or an entire school, is affordable to budgets of any size.



Sincerely,

Michael Robertson
