Bring your old computer back from the scrap. One thing that makes linux so great :)

#4
I have an old Acer laptop (1.3GHz processor, 1GB RAM, built-in 82855GME intel graphics chip) that I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on. I'd have installed later versions, except that later versions of Linux no longer support the 82855 GME chipset. That, and my baby daughter puked all over it about 2 years ago, and the keyboard is dead. I use an external flexible keyboard, and it works great.

I'd thought about setting it up as a combination FTP and Web server, but my FTP server of choice is FileZilla, and there is STILL no Linux version of the server.
