ColumbiaNet Kiosk Software

The ColumbiaNet Stations are running a heavily modified variant of Ubuntu Linux. The stations have USB drive support, allowing users to view, create, edit, print and save files to and from USB drives.

ColumbiaNets can be easily customized for specific locations, e.g, your department would like to use a different homepage or button. Email cnet-dev@columbia.edu for more information.

  • Acrobat Reader: View and print PDF files

  • Open Office: Create, view, edit and print documents, spreadsheets and presentations
  • Plugins: Flash, QuickTime, Windows Media Player, Real Player
