Dalston4London is a project of the Hackney Co-operative Developments and specialises in business support, customised training, premises provision and creating suitable environments for small businesses, community groups and voluntary organisations in Hackney.
Dalston4London was already using Open Office successfully and asked for help to install Ubuntu onto a Netbook with a view to migrating more extensively.
Colin, the communications manager, has MS Windows administration skills but wanted support with his first Ubuntu installation. He brough the Netbook to Fossbox and we worked together to troubleshoot some problems with the video driver.
The Netbook worked perfectly and Colin has since re-installed it with Ubuntu Karmic by himself — the problem with the video driver has been fixed in the latest versions of Ubuntu. Colin has since left Dalston4London but remains a fan of Ubuntu.
