Most distributions provide updated packages which have appeared since the last release. We monitor these package lists carefully and we apply all available updates to each computer we build. We accomodate requests as well and we currently do not charge for this service. If you want to have a particular piece of software installed and configured on your new computer, just e-mail and ask.

* With every LAC Portland system, we offer the ability to restore your computer to exactly the state it was in when you received your machine and with your personal files left untouched.
