Linux All of us who use computers create a problem we rarely consider. How do we dispose of them? This is no small concern. Estimates put the number of personal computers in use world-wide today at about one billion. The average lifespan of a personal computer is only two to five years. We can expect a tidal wave of computers ready for disposal shortly, and this number will only increase. And as if that isn't challenge enough, there are already several hundred million computers out-of-service, sitting in attics and basements and garages, awaiting disposal.

I've installed several Internet Cafe machines here in Seattle with the new Ubuntu 10.04, and with a small tweak so folks can use the Guest account from the login window, traces of previous users are eliminated with a simple Log Out/Log in..

I'd be interested to know what tweak you are using to achieve this?
