Re: [school-discuss] Computers for Kids

The Computer Recycling Center works with Computers and Education
(http://www.crc.org/) to rebuild old computers and donate them to
schools within the San Francisco Bay Area.  I don't think that they
donate to families, but they have weekly sales with discounted (but
often incomplete) computer systems and miscellaneous hardware.

I don't think that they use Linux (all of the machines I've seen them
donate run Win95 or Win98, although that was a few years ago), but I
could ask them about it (maybe even convince them to switch if they
haven't already).
