Freed Computer Limited

Hello.

I run a computer shop in the UK called Freed Computer: https://www.freedcomputer.uk/

It does not aim to sell machines running only 100% free, rather to refurbish second-hand machines to make them run Free Software. Hence the name "Freed Computer". I hope for most of the machines to cost under £200.

I hope that this can be helpful to:
- people on a budget
- people who are new to Free Software and don't want to worry about hardware support.

Re: Freed Computer Limited

That sounds like a good idea and I had been thinking about doing something like that myself.

Re: Freed Computer Limited

Note: this shop is closed now. This is because I decided that people are better empowered to build an FS friendly computer themselfes than by buying one. So I made freedcomputer.net for people to share Free Softwae success stories instead.
