Those of you with extra or old units around the house, why not donate to some of these organizations? Virtually all of them provide free computers to kids, schools, disabled individuals, elderly and low-income families.
Don't hesitate just because the unit is old. One option, even for an old i386 with 8MB of ram, is to run Linux .. check the 'Tiny Linux' project, http://tiny.seul.org/ , for more information. Even if the computer has no hard drive, it can be used as a 'nix diskless workstation. Anything is better than dumping several pounds of lead, beryllium, mercury, cadmium, and brominated-flame retardants into the environment!
This info gathered from http://www.opencollector.org/freecomputers.html .. and to those planning to contact any of these organizations .. mention 'Giveaway of the Day' as a resource for them to use for their 'giveaway' computers!
...and thanks to Wolven for the reminder to erase the hard drive before donation! Kill Disk will do just that, http://www.killdisk.com/ The free version will make one pass; the paid version will make several ... cleaning the disk to Department of Defense regulations.
