The Computer Recycling Project at The Working Centre is happy to announce we now have Xubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver available on our PXE network installer. If you're in the Kitchener/Waterloo area and need Xubuntu installed, please feel free to drop by. This form of installation is particularly useful for those who don't have a DVD drive. We've also got older images, including some that work with Pentium M-based architecture.

Along with these installers we have memory and drive-testing tools that boot via our PXE installer, and software if you just want to overwrite your drive with garbage data. Tuesdays tend to be busy because CR is not open on Monday or weekends, but hours are Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm. Xubuntu installations typically take a bit longer than via USB (30 minutes or so), but we've included several other software packages (Gimp, Inkscape, LibreOffice) that are not typically included in the stock Xubuntu installation.
