Old PC Kicking Around? Install Linux!
From our front-page news:
If you purchase a pre-built machine today, or build your own, you can remain confident that it's going to run any of the mainstream operating systems available today. But there's also likely many of you who have old machines hanging around that you can't stand to get rid of, and it's understandable. It could be memories, or simply the fact that you love having an old machine still running to brag about.

I did. Installed the latest ubuntu to a system I had given up on, and wow is it running nice now. I'm very pleased. Thank you for the idea, Rob.
