Distribution GNU/Linux

Logo Libre Emmabuntus.png
This distribution was designed to facilitate the refurbishing of computers given to humanitarian organizations, especially Emmaüs communities, where the name comes from, and to promote the discovery of GNU/Linux by beginners, but also to extend the life of the equipment and to reduce waste caused by over- consumption of raw materials.

Emmabuntüs is used to re-use computers by the following associations and organizations: PC de L'Espoir, Trira (TRI Rhône-Alpes), THOT (c.i.s), Ailleurs Solidaires, l’EPN de Durbuy (Belgium), Eisenia, see the full list.

Emmabuntüs is used by the children's story project « Once upon a time was Internet » on portable computers. This project is developed for school audience within the frame of the educational activity around the Data journey, and train them for the French Computer and Internet Certificate.

Emmabuntüs is more than a GNU/Linux distribution

And especially our collaboration with the Jerry - Do It Together project. Jerry is an open source hardware project that is fully up-cycled and very low-cost. It gives a new life to computer components that would otherwise go in the trash. About a year ago this project chose Emmabuntüs as a favourite distribution on the Jerry desktop version, and the JerryClan Ivory Coast work and create: JerryTub for the monitoring patients of tuberculosis, m-Pregancy for the monitoring of pregnancies and pregnant women, and OpenDjeliba a collaborative platform participatory citizens' information production by SMS from basic mobile phones.

Emmabuntüs is used in the project JerryCyber developed by Ayiyikoh Incubator. This project will provide access to computers and internet to the public and members of the FabLab.
