We also do a lot in the "cloud". We use Google Apps for most our our internal IT infrastructure - email, calendars, document sharing and online colaboration. We also use DropBox to backup all our files on multiple computers, including several off-site.

Can't we all just get along?
At Empower Up, we're curious about everything to do with computers. That's while you'll find all three major operating systems (at least for personal use) in our facility. We use Windows XP for administrative computers, We sell some computers with Windows XP and some with no OS at all via our Reuse Store. Our class room/Internet Cafe has 1 Ubuntu and 1 MacOS and 10 Windows XP terminals (all running off Windows Server 2003). Some of the free computers we grant are loaded with Ubuntu and some with Windows XP. We are in the process of building a database server that will be running a version of Linux in what is known as a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) and will be part of a new Point of Sale (POS) system that will be an open source software implementation.
