Years ago Windows 95 was replaced with Slackware. Though I have had occasions to install Windows since then, they do not last more than a month. Limited specific uses. Other than an iBook and and Mac Mini, it has been Linux (and other *nix) since 1995.
On May 6, 2015 I opened a savings account at Bangkok Bank branch in Chiang Mai Thailand. The person was using a DECpc 333 LP. A sticker on it said "Y2K Ready" I just had to take a picture.
Shuttle XS35 GT. 2GB ram and 500G hard drive. Ubuntu 14.04LTS
About $400 in this 4-5 years ago. The less I spend on computers the more money I have to enjoy the finer things in life. Like Thai food. In Thailand.
I moved to Thailand. All I carry is a guesthouse key, wallet, passport papers & cell phone
I prefer not to be 'chained'
Now let us put all of the best minds together and develop a solution. Oh wait... this is America. We only respond to money so there will be no solution.
But on another gambit... I'd suggest that all incoming H1-B visa tech workers be required to donate some time to solving this problem. For they claim to be the best and the brightest. (Of which the USA corporations claim they simply cannot do without.)

Pass on Google and give Ubuntu Touch a shot:
I tend to believe this is true about the global economy. It seems to me the simple way to say it is: A lot of the money has been sucked out of the global economy and hidden away. Thus the money is no longer useful.

I'm not sure there is really an absolute correllation between economic growth and greenhouse gas emmissions. An increase in stock value does not increase global emmissions per se.
If the shadow banking, quantitative easing, and other shennagins are counted in the global economy there surely is no correllation.
If your Masters or Ph.D doesn't work you can always take in laundry for the next few years.
Really.... It is OK Sabu has this under control:
Yea.. one call to Tor Ekeland is a good start
Isn't that how weev discovered the ATT flaw?
Be very vey careful.
Looks like Eric Schmidt was paying some attention to what Julian Assange was explaining in the meeting back in June 2011.
