I’m a long time The Tech Guy podcast listener; still remember Leo from “Call for Help” on local broadcast TV here in LA. My first personal computer was an Osborne 1 grey case.
There are four of us in my area that offer free in-home tech help to seniors. A very popular service as you can imagine.
I ask via social media for donations of working but unwanted laptops, Windows and Mac. I wipe the drive and reinstall the OS. Then I donate the laptops to teachers and, through local non-profits, to low income families.
Win7 and newer Windows laptops I upgrade to Windows 10. Very straightforward. WinVista and WinXP get Linux installed. MacBooks that came with OSX Lion or later I can reload the OS, up to El Capitan if the laptop is new enough.
The older white plastic MacBooks are a challenge. I’ll be looking on the forum for ideas and answers about how to load them with Linux.
Anyway, that’s what keeps me busy most days. Glad to be in the TWiT.community
