“Earth PCs” with OpenOffice

At the intersection of environmental sustainability (via low electricity consumption), and economic/political sustainability (via support of open source software), Tech Networks of Boston has introduced green PCs that offer low power consumption and preinstalled.

While smaller OEMs seem to be offering OpenOffice more and more frequently, we’re still waiting on the big ones (in the USA anyway), to catch up with the program. OEM pre-installation has an enormous impact on marketshare and could help to make OOo the default choice, if and when it occurs.

The Earth PCs offered by Tech Networks have the additional advantage of greater energy efficiency, which has been a feature of Macs for years, but may now start to catch on more broadly across the PC sector.
