Specifically, the each workstation will be a 486 machine running Linux (a GNU Public Licensed version of Unix). Processing power will be provided by IBG's highspeed Digital Alpha workstations running Digital Unix (a Unix version based on OSF/1).
The workstations will be connected to the Internet through the University of Colorado's network. This will allow individuals to access their e-mail at home, and to transfer files from the workshop back to their home accounts.
Do not be concerned if you are inexperienced with Unix, as guidance will be available at the workshop. If you are experienced with Unix, all of the tools you are familiar with using, such as bash, Emacs, Netscape, Pico, Pine, tcsh, vi, and others will be available.
Photos of IBG's server and the room in which classes will be held are available.
