    Great product. Very well done.

    I've purchased a Limbo brand a few years ago, and have been very pleased with its performance. It has caused me to recommend Zareason to anyone wishing to buy a new computer.

    Dear Cathy,

    I purchased a Limbo 5440 late last year (2011). I am very pleased with it's performance and functionality. You sent it pre-loaded with the Ubuntu flavor of Linux.

    The open software available for the OS is awesome. I have been able to say 'adios' to Windows forever.

    I asked my wife how she likes it. She is basically a computer illiterate but says she 'LIKES IT'. If you knew her like I do, you would consider this a major KUDO.

    I have developed on many platforms with UNIX being a favorite. The ease of working with LINUX is a real joy. So far the hardware has been phenomenal. I've hooked up with printers and audio systems automatically with no problems.

    But what is REALLY AWESOME so for is the lack of problems with viruses and outside attacks.

    Thank you and keep up with the good work.

    Sincerely,
    Michael J. Fischer

    P.S.
    Please consider opposing Bill Gates and his radical agenda of population control and government control over all of our lives. You need customers now and in the future, which means more informed people (babies).

    Worked out of the box. I have yet to be confronted with the message to download a helper file or a codec or anything. I'm totally pleased with my Zareason desktop.

    This is my second computer built specifically for GNU/Linux. I LOVE it!!! The best part is that I do not need specific drivers and it just works. After embarrassing myself by forgetting to add the wireless antennas (long time no desktop; thank you tech support), I could not be happier with my Limbo.

    Loaded with Edubuntu, it is primarily used by my kids (6 &5) but I sneak on it from time to time on Mint. Typing on it as we speak.

    Now if I could just get the spouse to forgo M$, life would be perfect. I hate using the Sony. It feels bloated and completely unresponsive. I love being able to modify via terminal.

    DansGuardian/Squid combo is great for kid surfing control. So much flexibility I still do not understand why people cling on to their M$ and now Mac is not much better.

    Free yourselves and buy a Zareason computer. You'll never look back. Akin to Plato's allegory of the cave, you will have left the cave and finally see the sun.

    I cannot recommend the computer enough.

    Thank you for everything,
    J-P Peltier
