VKN,

Thanks for the heads up with this article.
It's very troubling, indeed.

Those computers, once climatized, should find a home in any of the schools that have electricity. If they have the basic software for composing text and calculating numbers - that's a start!

If it can't read power-point presentations or edit video or play the latest violence-adled video game - SO WHAT!!!!

I wonder if there's something else going on? Hmmmn....

Peace
