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
In the Beginning there was nothing, which exploded - Yeah right...
