Spreading Linux in Bridgeport Public Schools

As of right now, the schools in my hometown are undergoing vital modifications. This is long overdue. I'm worried about the upcoming generation since they are caught in a society with lots of complications. Of this generation, will include my siblings. And, I must do what I can to see them accomplish their potential. 

Since it is said, it is easy to thrive in a successful environment, yet your real strengths are tested with challenges, I decided to offer my help, armed with the skills I harvest to see Bridgeport be the city it can be. A letter stating my concerns and assistant objective has been emailed to the superintendent of the Bridgeport Public Schools. Hopefully, he is convinced. Here is the copy of the letter.

Conclusion: If we want a better future, put in the work, Everyone.

Greetings Mr. Ramos,

My name is Istimsak Abdulbasir, a Linux.com Moderator and member of the “Linux Foundation” which is a non-for-profit organization that specializes in the promotion of Linux. There has been reports that the Bridgeport Public School System is undergoing vital changes. These changes are to improve student and teacher performances which, hopefully, will increase the success rate of students achieving educational standards. This is a critical step towards making education work wonders for all beneficiaries in preparation of a challenging future. As an individual with siblings currently attending, this means so much to the entire family.


Because I am a big fan of education, I would be happy to assist in this endeavor. Currently, I am involved in IT, and one of my main functions is dekstop PC revival. Purchasing computer hardware and software can be very expensive. To alternate this complication and stay “Green” at the same time, old, used, and non-working computers will be collected, gone through a series of repairs and configurations, and supplied to any school institute in the Bridgeport area in need of modern technology. The machines will have a new OS system, Ubuntu Linux; which provides better security, increased speed, more stability, easy to use and will deliver a different perspective on computer science. Since Linux is still relatively new, I’m more than happy to tutor students and teachers in its system operations.


The best part about Ubuntu Linux, it's free. You do not have to pay a penny for the software or for the latest upgrades. Using linux has the potential to help you, economically, stay within educational budget without the need to ever upgrade your systems. Acquiring software applications is a breeze since all programs are managed in an online archive. No purchasing of applications is necessary.


If you would like to know more about what I am willing to offer, you can contact me via cellphone or email. Look forward to hearing from you.
