Reware Soc. Coop - Impresa Sociale, Rome, Italy

Reware Soc. Coop - Impresa Sociale, is a small not for profit cooperative that sells refurbished computers. Three of its four workers use Debian on their client for common tasks, and, of course, the server is Debian based. Reware owns a shop where it sells refurbished computers with Debian, Ubuntu and, rarely, proprietary OSs.

The choice of Free Software is due to the fact that it fits with the strong ethical, social and environmental commitment of the founders and workers of the organizzation. Not least is important, in the field of environmentally oriented motivations, to underline the low system requirements of such an OS, that help to extend the life cycle of electronic goods, reducing in such a way its environmental impact, by postponing the moment when it becomes waste.
