Hi Fabian,

What wonderful news and great help to the school. Were you hired for the install etc., was this for and aid group? Photos?

It's always nice to hear of someone helping out in areas where help is needed and where LibreOffice will make a difference.

Big thanks for the groundbreaking work at MRC. This would look great as a blog article on our blog planet -- even in French! Maybe some of your students will jump in and help out with a Haitian Créole translation of LibreOffice.

I am happy to announce that all PCs recycled at MicroRecycCoop (MRC) in
Montreal have been shipping with LibreOffice for some months now:

A couple of weeks ago I came back from a trip to Haiti where my mandata
was to deliver + install a 50 PC lab and network, whil etraining local
staff + students. They had LibreOffice for Windows pre-installed on all
PCs, in addition to being dual-boot Ubuntu / Trisquel systems which
already included LibreOffice. This all started when I went into MRC's
office and starting talking to its owner about putting GNU/Linux and
LibO on their systems... :) After a year or so I am happy to see the

The school I went to is part of a network of several buildings&  schools
where I had the opportunity to have similar discussions and sometimes
leave copies of LibO and GNU/Linux live CDs.

I also copied / gave away ~60 copies of the installers during several
workshops there, it turned out great. I didn't know there is a spelling
dictionary for creole! That extension for LibreOffice and other
free-software related projects are listed here now:
