Help us donate server software to a New Zealand school or charity organisation: we accept suggestions

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 17-Apr-2006 08:40

Our Windows Mobile User Group is part of the Culminis, an organisation that brings together IT professionals from around the world and provide tools and resources to develop these people's abilities and skills.

As part of the worldwide launch of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, thanks to Microsoft and Culminis, I have been given a few copies of Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition (25 Cals) for giveaway.

Since we have lots of companies already using this server software in our groups, I thought an interesting way to help others would be by donating two copies of this software to a couple of school or groups with direct actions and impact on the community (one copy each).

Schools could use this fo administrative purposes, or in a tech lab for teaching purposes. Non-profit organisations can use the software for administrative purposes.

The rules are simple: if you want to nominate a New Zealand-based school or non-profit organisation to receive a copy of this software on DVD (NFR), then post your suggestion as a comment on this blog entry.

We will draw two schools or non-profit organisation from all suggestions, contact them and arrange to have the software delivered.

Also, if your suggestion is the lucky one, I will send you a Windows Server water bottle.

We are not donating the hardware. This is the server software only, so you should be sure that the organisation you are suggesting can arrange proper hardware to be used - perhaps someone else reading this blog post can arrange some desktop to be donated to run this software?

I will close the suggestions on Monday 24 April 2006.

Note that we expect suggestions to point to active groups, not some Church of the Flying Spagetthi Monster, sect or political party.
