"Reglue is an organization that has been placing Linux computers in
the homes of financially disadvantaged kids since 2005. The program
started in central Texas and we'd love to see it grow [...].
Using Linux as the operating system has not been a matter of religion
or partisanship. Not even a matter of personal choice. It's a matter
of pragmatic necessity. To give you a better picture of why, here's

In short: We installed a computer for a financially-disadvantaged kid.
We taught that kid how to use the computer. That kid was supremely
happy with his new Linux computer. We left. The end."
