Laptop resurrexit

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.  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.

  1. We have two laptops that we are on the verge of replacing, and will keep your offer in mind. Both are physically wearing out: key markings worn off, track pad not functioning, that sort of thing. Would that work for your experiment?
