Project gnuHU-books: Borrow a used notebook for free

The project "gnuHU-books" is lending used notebooks to students for free. The offer is meant for students studying at one of Berlin's education institutions (pupils, university students, staff, guest auditors), who do not have a computer available at present.

The initiative #gnuHU has approx. two dozen notebooks available. All notebooks are used ThinkPads type R61i. The notebooks were planned to be used in on-campus software classes on working with GN//Linux and Free/Libre/OpenSource Software this summer semester. However, due to the Covid19-crisis and the shift to a digital semester, these on-campus classes will not take place and the notebooks will not be used there.
Hence, you can now borrow one of these notebooks for free.
