Perhaps off topic (non-linux) but I have seen other posters here
looking for things to do with old boxen and open source software.
The open-source education software, sugar, which was developed for the
"$100 laptop" can now be loaded onto a $5 USB stick to run aging PCs
and Macs with a new interface and custom educational software.
"What we are doing is taking a bunch of old machines that barely run
Windows 2000, and turning them into something interesting and useful
for essentially zero cost," says Walter Bender "It becomes a whole
new computer running off the USB key; we can breathe new life into
millions of decrepit old machines."
