I have a friend who is a Samaritans volunteer and they are having a
debate about going broadband and the vulnerability to trojans spyware
and viruses. As I understand it they use web based email and would also
be researching things from the WWW, so they don't need any special
Now I know that there are freeware scanning programs etc., but surely it
would be better if the Open and Free software community could help them
by setting up Linux on their existing systems.
Samaritans are all volunters and do not have necessarily have any
expertise in IT but we do, would it not be a good place to help out and
raise the profile of Linux?
still looking for that door into summer
