RE[5]: WTF?!?

First of all, telling the other person to get a job is the arrogant part; you don't know whether or not he has one or whether or not he could afford a computer.

Obviously I was not referring to parent poster. Everyone on osnews can afford a computer (otherwise they would not be on the internet).

If you can afford internet, you can afford a computer with >= 1 gig of ram.

Secondly, just telling someone to buy a newer, better computer is the ignorant part; it's much wiser to keep using old hardware as long as it works and fits the bill. Just buying new all the time creates unnecessary stress on the environment.

You can acquire a fast enough computer second hand for under 100eur, without stressing the environment. I buy almost all my components (not monitors) second-hand, since that's the most rational way to go about it anyway.

Libraries? Internet caf├ęs? Etc.

I doubt that it's common, but you can't just dismiss the possibility.
