[ Thanks to M. Fioretti for this link. ]

"Last November, the Confalonieri Public Junior High School in Monza, Northern Italy set up a really interesting and original optional course for its students. When I heard about it on an Italian mailing list I contacted the two teachers who run the course, Fabio Frittoli and Francesco De Gennaro (quoted below as F&F for brevity) to know something more.

"Stop: What's the course subject?

"F&F: The course consists of five afternoon meetings, during two hours each, in which the students build one computer per participant with these characteristics:

"CPU: AMD Sempron 140
RAM: 2 GB DDR2 800
Hard disk: SATA 160gb
Motherboard: Asrock m68 with integrated audio, video and Ethernet ports
DVD burner
Mid tower case the Free as in Freedom Ubuntu operating system"
