Win an Ubuntu Linux laptop in the System76 'Pop Quiz' giveaway
The upcoming school year is quickly approaching, meaning many parents and students are busy shopping. While some kids still need old-school things like pens and paper, the really fun thing to buy is a new laptop.
Understandably, money is tight for many folks, meaning a quality computer might not be in the budget. Luckily, System76 is giving away one of its most popular Linux-based laptops -- the Lemur. The pre-installed Ubuntu operating system is absolutely brilliant for education, making it a sweet prize for the winner. If you are interested in entering, you can find out the details below.
System76 says the following.
It's pop quiz time! We're celebrating Back-to-School with fun polls and pop-quiz questions in social media. The best part is, we're giving away prizes! Tell us about the 'one thing you wish was created, made, or built today' for a chance to win a Lemur laptop (and more). We're accepting entries until September 14.
As per above, entering the giveaway is not as easy as checking a box and hoping for the best. Instead, System76 wants you to put in a little effort. You know what? That is sort of cool. Rather than merely hand it to someone at random, it can be given to someone who truly needs it.
