Thanks for sharing this, the piece on revitalising old hardware with a new OS caught my interest, My suspicion is that the 'game changer' tag placed on it by ComputerWorld is rather extravagant. The 2gb minimum RAM requirement for CloudReady is quite steep and I have been revitalising old hardware by installing Linux Operating Systems with lower RAM requirements than this for years. Time will tell
