I recently installed Ubuntu on an old PIII that we were otherwise throwing 
away for one of the guys that works for our cleaning service.  A week later, 
I asked how he was doing with it.  The response was that he was waiting to 
scrape together the money for Internet service before he set it up.  He hoped 
he remembered what we showed him about using it when that time came.
