Who is responsible for Faircomputer?
Faircomputer is an association under Swiss law. Our declared goal is to promote the sustainable use of electronic devices, especially laptops, and to promote Free Software. To this end, the association refurbishes used equipment (clean, repair, expand) and installs a Free Operating System. The devices prepared in this way are passed on free of charge. The association also offers a repair service for these devices in order to guarantee their sustainable use (FairWarranty). In order to be able to offer this service, a contribution of CHF 100 per device will be charged.
The association operates collection points where companies and private individuals can hand in used laptops.
Who founded Faircomputer?
Lioh Möller has over 25 years of experience in the Linux field. As a long-time leader of the Swiss Ubuntu team and active country coordinator of the FSFE (Free Software Foundation), she is also privately involved in Free Software.
Her interest in computers that work entirely with Free Software is also reflected in her commitment to the Libreboot project, where she is working on the implementation of a fully Free Computer BIOS. According to her ideas, everyone should have unrestricted access to computers and information and be able to use them in a self-determined way.
With the Faircomputer project, which she founded, she wants to promote the sustainable use of electronic devices and contribute to the expansion of Linux.
