The Reincarnation of an Obsolete Laptop

770_thinpadThere's a lot of discussion about the $100 laptop these days.  I hate to be a party pooper, but I'll sell you any number of laptops for $100.  No, they won't be multi-colored or extra-durable or have hand cranks and cheap viagra soft I can't guarantee that the battery will function, but the garages and store-rooms of America are littered with laptops that have double digit price tags.  The question is, what do we do with them?
Howard Fosdick has some ideas.  His article at Desktop Linux "Reincarnating a discarded laptop with Linux," gives a step by step guide to creating your own $100 laptop.  It does everything a computer should, though it'll be low on power and you'll be hard up to find a way to connect to a high-speed internet.  But, largely, old laptops can be very useful.  And, if you're using Free Open Source Software, all it takes is pfizer soft viagra time. And with new laptop versions of Linux and Fosdick's guide, it doesn't even need to take very much time.

Use Puppy Linux
written by a guest, August 09, 2006
Fosdick is right about Puppy Linux, I have used it on several very old desktops and one fairly old laptop and it has always worked well.

Puppy is also probably the easist Linux to use, not counting paid for versions like Linspire and Suse, but you cant install them on a low spec computer.

The main problem with any Linux distro is getting the modem to work, dialup can be very tricky (although my current SmartLink modem worked first time), broadband is usually easy. For dialup buy a external usb modem.
