Here’s an idea: send me your tired, old (but bootable) laptop — the one that makes you ask, “Why would anyone want that?” — and I will give it some kind of new life with Linux.Â I’ll document the transformation and find a charitable home for it, perhaps a church or other ministry.
- You get the donation letter.
- I demonstrate how Linux can be useful for old equipment.
- A charity gets (another) computer; perhaps yours.
- The landfills sigh a bit.
- Win, win, win, win
If you have such a laptop or are part of a 501c3 nonprofit and want to receive one, please send me a message using the comments form. District of Columbia area givers and receivers preferred for proximity’s sake, but in anywhere in the United States is fine.
