Guys, I know this will sound like a kitchy advertisement, but you can 
give the gift of Unix!  I run a website called FreeLinuxBox.Org 
(http://freelinuxbox.org) and I am always looking to encourage people to 
spread the wealth in that manner when they have spare hardware.  Simply 
put, you get a working box installed with an *open* style unix like 
Linux, *BSD, etc. and you give it away on the site.  Generally speaking 
the person you decide to give it to pays you for shipping or picks it up
