public unix access

I access the net from a public library, and would
like to know if there is a way I can receive a unix/linux
account to access through the web (hopefully free). Is
this possible? Please e-mail response.

Thanks,

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

   Unfortunately, I doubt your chance getting a free account anywhere for free. Mostly due to the abuse of those accounts
and administrative time attached to it. Few years ago lost of
startup ISP used to give free account trial, but hackers start
to abuse them using them as a jump point to attack other systems
on the Net. Some commercial filed suits ... so no more free account.
   But unlimited Internet access are cheap these days, mostly under $1.00 a day, from your local ISP or major ISP such as Netcom, Earthlink ....
   Hope it helps.

Best regards,
Minh Lai
