What to do with spare linux PC and 160GB HD?

  Bob The Blob 10:13 12 May 09

Aside from my main Vista PC, I have old PC running Linux with a 20Gb hard drive and also a spare 160GB SATA hard drive.
Any ideas how I could put these items to good use before I decide to chuck them?

Oh, I am making the assumption that, being fairly geeky, they'll have a Linux version... I haven't checked. Sorry if not.... or you could write your own....

Linux has all sorts of uses in addition to being a brilliant desktop PC.

You could configure it as a enterprise grade firewall, or as a home file server or even a web server to name but three.

What about a media centre?

Linux is only restricted by your imagination and the effort you are prepared to make to learn.

your local freecycle group will have someone who would want it. they usualy go quickly. also a good way to get rid of other stuff you don't want.
