I read every issue of Linux Magazine, but very rarely purchase them, Barnes and Nobles is a great place to catch up on things while my wife reads her magazines. But before each trip/vacation that I take I usually grab the current issue if I haven’t already read it.
In the October 2006 issue, Jason Perlow writes a good article about recycling computers by using Xubuntu instead of just pitching that old Pentium box. I use Xubuntu on several older machines machines and have always found it be great. A very simple but elegant desktop with great support, great hardware detection and the hallmark of all Ubuntu releases, it just works.
Anyways it is a great article and shows you how you can even update your old Mac by installing Xubuntu on it. For those w/ older machines, please don’t just throw them away, load Xubuntu on it and give it to a friend 🙂
