Godly geek squad.

There is a cheaper, more Christian way to protect your computer than buying Windows Vista. Ubuntu Christian Edition (whatwouldjesusdownload.com) is a free operating system based on Ubuntu, an open-source Linux system that gives users the freedom to change the software. Web developer Jereme Hancock personalized Ubuntu with parental controls for Web content and Christian software--such as e-Sword Bible software and Virtual Rosary--to create Ubuntu Christian Edition.

In his blog, WhatWouldJesusBlog, Hancock says RCIA class inspired him to develop another Web resource: TheCatholicSearch. Powered by Google, this search engine only looks through sites from an RCIA handout and user suggestions.

To support all his sites, Hancock sells "Christian Geek" merchandise--from a logo shirt to a mousepad with a cross pattern created with slashes and dashes. Along with free whatwouldjesusdownload.com e-mail addresses, the merchandise helps users spread the word about this site as well as the Word of God.
