Hardware, Embedded Systems In previous OSNews articles I've claimed that discarded computers up to ten years old can be refurbished and made useful to someone. They shouldn't be discarded. They should be refurbished -- fixed up and reused -- rather than recycled -- destroyed and separated into their constituent materials. So how does one do this? In this and several subsequent articles, I'll describe how to revitalize older computers.

I've been recycling old PCs for years, about half my friends have needed a computer at one point or another and garbage picked PCs, cleaned up with a little extra ram shoved in (if I have the right kind lying around) and Linux installed is a great way to help out folks who have limited funds and need to get online. You've put a lot more thought into it then I ever did, I think I shall book mark this page for future reference.
