From Boxes to Bootup: Build Your Own PC

As part of the University's 2009 Alternative Classroom Learning Experience, the University of the Philippines Linux Users' Group will be holding an ACLE class entitled "From Boxes to Bootup: Build Your Own PC". This will be held on Wednesday, February 4, 2009, from 1 PM at the UP Computer Center.

Speakers will discuss and demonstrate how to build your own computer from parts, and get it up and running with Linux. They will also discuss the advantages of free and open source software (FOSS) on your computing life. There will also be a practical component of the class as participants will get a chance to build a PC themselves.

To register for the ACLE class, log on to the ACLE CRS at http://acres.ph.tc and follow the instructions.

Due to the conversion of offices in UP Diliman to Linux, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (OVCSA) coordinated with UnPLUG to conduct a training on Linux and OpenOffice.org. The training was held on January 14 and 21, 2004. The first day of training introduced the OVCSA staff to the history of Linux, the concept of Open Source and basic Linux usage. The second day, on the other hand, tackled word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations using the OpenOffice.org suite.


UP College of Engineering Library Staff Linux Training

The eBetaway facility at the basement of the Engineering Library is composed of 15 computers used mainly for word processing and web surfing. Due to the costly and virus-prone Microsoft Windows operating system, the Engineering Library staff coordinated with UnPLUG to convert the whole facility into Linux. UnPLUG converted the computers into Mandrake Linux, a user-friendly variant of Linux.
