I’m in my basement shop rebuilding an old Gateway LC2 desktop for donation to a local family without a PC. I do this as part of an old computer club we once ran. We’re qualified as a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher so we get Windows 2000 licenses for next to nothing. I add bunches of free/open source educational software & games, free antivirus, Open Office, other things to make ’em usable. EDIT: I refurbished five systems this weekend – four Gateways, a Dell, and an IBM Thinkpad laptop. All will be donated to local families this week.
