In a way, Linux loons have an affinity to all things smelly. Notably among those things are, of course, Richard Stallman and old, rat-infested computers fresh out of their respective dumpsters.

Like 9/11 truthers and other archetypal crazies, the world through the eyes of loons is one built upon conspiracies and craftily manipulated by the Rockefellers, George Soros, NWO and some insidious extraterrestrial beings. And how do they keep our sheepish heads down? As anyone having watched a Michael Moore documentary would know – by making us buy new things of course!

For the rest of us, old things are simply not all that necessarily good. This is why after all these years of putting up with them, we decide to part ways with these former possessions and let the dumpster-divers have their turns. We have all been there, done that, and made the informed decision that a Pentium 90 on a Socket 5 is simply no longer good enough for the job at hand, and, like a retiring employee, the only place for an obsolete piece of machinery to go is out the door.

Of course, the loons in our mist beg a different picture of the situation. They think that not only are we all sheeples for ever considering a new computer, they also believe that, for inexplicable reasons, the 430VX-based machines that we have thrown out years before are in fact packed full of magic and unicorns (rather than ACPI and LBA mapping bugs), and amongst the rapidly aging electrolytic capacitors, there are unlimited potentials to be uncovered with the mythical power of the penguin god.

This is, of course, until Mickey from next to the CPU fan decides that the whole rackett is just too much in the way of its afternoon nap and proceeds to bite the fingers off of our dear loons’ hands. Good riddance.

What a crazy rant. Have you a point?

Yeah, that recycling the computer puts it to much better use than putting Linux on it and having it do absolutely nothing but waste power.

I agree with Joe Monco.

There is point in the computer’s lifetime where, even with a theoretical OS with 0% overhead, it just isn’t up to any usefull job. Let’s say you manage to put LegacyOS Linux (yes, it actually exists) on a Pentium II 233MHz.

WHAT on earth are you planning to do with it? Play video? Eveything is Mpeg 4 this days, and this requires a 1GHz PIII. Edit photos? Good luck opening a 4Mpixel photo with 64MBs or ram. Even if you manage to put Linux on it, it’s useless. Dumpster dived PCs are useless. Stop trying to make them usable by installing Linux on them (which is useless on it self btw). It won’t work.

Just send it to recycling, and buy a new computer, that can run a proper OS.

Sigh… I wonder how many innocent electrons could be saved by recycling that piece of dung and getting a new PC and monitor that aren’t electricity whores?

@ Linsuxoid

That is a highly entertaining picture.

Someone please tell me it’s actually fabricated…

Pizza laptop is awesome however, just think how much cheaper laptops would be if we could buy components at factory price and glue them onto cardboard…

Eh?

What do you mean you don’t want to have a smelly decomposing piece of sh*t instead of real computer?!
