Wow a computer the size of a thumb drive? That's brilliant, how the hell did they do it?

Except once you look into it, you still need the computer as well... Isn't this just another linux distro package on a thumb drive? Aren't there dozens of these already? :dontknow:

yea it seems like another do gooder thing that wont work.
Its like they think microsofts domination and high prices are what is stopping these people from affording a computer, not the fact that they cant afford food.
If these people did manage to get thier hands on a computer, its highly unlikely that they bought it new from a shop and paid anything for the operating system.
