Puppy Linux

is one of the best ways to keep old computers giving useful service.
Early Pentium computer running Puppy is faster tha a new(ish) dual core running XP for many apps!
It's also an easy route/user friendly route to Linux.

That's a challenging statistic you've posted there, about energy consumed during production, and I'd love to know more about it. I recently replaced my Mac G4 server with a Mac Mini server. I cut power consumption by more than half - power that's consumed all day, every day. Many old computers are fantastically inefficient (the old Mac consumed over ten watts when it was turned off, due to a funky power supply). Keeping them around an extra five or ten years may or may not be doing anyone a favour.
