I have a keen interest in recycling and certain "green" matters (by which I mean recycling, renewable energy, efficiency etc), and I realise that most consumer electronic equipment including computers can be recycled however it is much more efficient to re-use something before we use energy to recycle it.
I heard on the grapevine that there are oganisations/charities that collect old out of date computers, installing a lite distro like ubuntu or DSL, and giving it to people without a computer. Essentially restoring and re-using it.
I thought this would be a nice project and wondered if anyone heard of this being done already or even if anyone on here is doing something similar?
