Where are all the OLD computers to go?
Can there be a section for older computers? I don't mean 600mhz, I mean like 486 and prior to that. I mean, I know this is all about advancement but Linux can breathe new life into really cheap computers. I have nothing cutting edge and I figure I do really good with everything. I use a 166 for school >gasp!<
There's another thread from a guy in India asking about a budget system, and someone told him to look for something around $500. That's a long time's wages in India. Why not get him online for about $100 and have the best system in his area? I'm in El Paso, Texas and people here are mostly computer illiterate but India is a whole different ballgame. But I bet he could get a $10 486 pretty easy, and load some kidn of Linux on that and be online like the rest of us.
Can there be a section made for older computers?
India's low wages are not so low anymore
I read an article a couple weeks ago that pointed out the fact that the wages in india have risen to a point where it's not necessarily cheeper to use programmers there. Some companies are pulling out and looking for cheaper labor elswhere or bringing the work back to the states.
