Engineering Computing Services is adding new features to the Self Computing Commons in Eaton Hall.
Eight workstations in the commons are being converted to PiXiE workstations that contain only high-demand applications. The goal is to optimize workstation usage in the commons by providing light and fast workstations. The PiXiE workstations feature a compact software load that includes only the most commonly used applications.
Programs on these workstations are:
- a PDF reader,
- the GIMP (open-source Photoshop clone),
- and several other basic computer applications.
The PiXiE workstations are marked with a sticker on the monitor frame and the PiXiE logo on the login screen. Students should use their KU Online ID and password to login to the PIiXiE workstations.
