Interesting project.

Yes, I found it interesting. Slow news day. I've never had a problem loading an OS of my choice onto a laptop, sometimes two at a time. When I was mucking about with old tower systems I installed XP, replaced that with various versions of Linux and when there was nothing on the tele, Free BSD (cos their mascot is dead cool).

Also parallel computing is getting a bit ordinary. For example, the San Diego Supercomputer Center has built a Linux cluster around Raspberry Pi devices as part of an effort to help kids and adults learn about parallel computing. (Even teaching grown-ups!). Ref

PS3s are only viable if they are free (IMHO).

Still, thanks for the link.
