Environmentally Friendly Computers
ComputerEcology is a group that discusses ways to make computers less harmful to our environment and to solve many ecological issues. They explain how to use Linux to save power and consumables like paper and ink. Since it does not require big hardware, Linux may be used with old computers to make their life cycle longer. Games may be used in environmental education and software is available to simulate ecological processes.
Kevin from Oregon, USA who introduced us to this Dot Org of the Week tells us, "Once again creative people are finding great ways to solve real-world problems using open technology. I can attest to using a computer for longer because of Linux. I just retired my 11 year-old machine, built around a 200MHz Pentium I. The computer had been the main one for the family, and was running IceWM on Mandrake 9.0. IceWM is just one of several window managers which run nicely on lesser powered machines. Many of its parts will be reused, and those that aren't will be recycled through FreeGeek.org."
