February 8, 2008, Newsletter Issue #100: Computer Donation

Tip of the Week

If you are donating hardware with a pre-installed Microsoft operating system, keep in mind that the license is only valid when used on the machine on which it was first installed. Since charitable organizations usually cannot afford to purchase and license new operating systems, a legal transfer - that is, keeping the machine and operating system together - will be very helpful to the receiving organization.

*Linux and Mac operating systems have different requirements, but passing on the operating system software with all donated computers remains best practice.
