Veer pointed me to this posting on BoingBoing about , which seems to have a few things in common with our thinking on using used PCs as Thin Clients: “ recycles used technology to provide computers, Internet access, education and job skills training to those in need. In exchange for a few hours of community service in the recycling center volunteers earn their very own Freek Box, a refurbished computer system loaded with the Gnu/Linux operating system and Free Software programs. teaches new users how to operate their Freek Box and offers a variety of hip classes, like Perl programing, in their training center.”
