"friendly computers": starting my own computer co-operative friendlycomputers.club anarchismfree and open-source softwarehardware via vidak 11 months ago | archived | plain text cache (formatted)| source | 2 comments vidak wrote : I have had very little luck getting employment that didn't make me mentally unwell. So, I started my own 'small business', which is very quickly turning into a worker's co-operative. I went to the local rotary markets and sold almost all my stock that day, and left the markets early. I install a GNU system onto every computer I sell, and it forms an interesting talking point. When I demonstrate MATE or xfce desktop environments to people, they are more than happy to walk away with a Friendly Computer. Seemingly, not having window$ installed on a computer doesn't deter people!
