Heard that friend of a friend is in need of computer (poverty sucks) but I don't have any left. I've usually managed to find some old laptops from my friends workplaces, installed gnulinux on them and made people happy. It's especially rewarding when you are able to gift a laptop to a pensioner who is afraid to buy one but would really like to understand "this email thing".

Nowadays it seems that companies usually lease their laptops or just send them to be destroyed so I'm all outta laptops and can't provide much needed help.

Dear is there any hope? Where might I be able to score some free laptops to gift to those that need them?

Niin ja kanssa. Onko tosiaan niin ettei firmoilla ole enää wanhoja läppäreitä kiertoon pistettäväksi?
