There's quite a good article on the subject here, starting with Benjamin Franklin's notorious pirating: http://www.tuxdeluxe.org/node/157
They could also run Arachne as a graphical browser: http://www.glennmcc.org/
It's still being taught as an introductory language at my daughter's university - Ada 2005 no less! Just installed GNAT & GPS on her laptop. Me, I'm an old Fortran jockey (VMS, mostly). There still seem to be a few jobs in it, but nobody interested in me (yet).
You could run a word processor under RISC OS on the Pi: http://www.mw-software.com/software/ewtw/ewtw.html
I'm sure I saw an old documentary about this kind of thing happening in the London Underground. Watch out for giant ants...
No, but the Wayback Machine always respects takedown requests. Note that the British Library maintains an archive of UK sites, and still has the speeches in question (from April 2008 onwards):http://www.webarchive.org.uk/wayback/archive/20080410100951/http://www.conservatives.com/tile.do?def=news.speeches.page

Almost right. The following explanation was (I think) originally posted on Slashdot a while back: If there was no Adam & Eve, there was no Fall, therefore no Original Sin, therefore no need for Jesus (assuming he existed) to die in order to "save" us from said Sin, therefore no "eternal life" - so it destroys the entire basis of their belief system. Or, as someone else pointed out downthread, it boils down to fear of death.
The recent announcement of a merger between LXDE and Razor-Qt is another nail in the coffin of GTK+3, and should produce something rather lighter than KDE.
Yep, with an appropriate choice of distro (Bodhi in my case, though Peppermint, Lubuntu, Crunchbang or AntiX are also acceptable) it's still quite useful. That's my home machine, of course. My work laptop is a bit meatier (Fujitsu Lifebook E780, Core i5, 4Gb RAM).
Actually 10922.67 times as much (48Kb ZX Spectrum to 512Mb Asus EEEPC 701 4G).
Where's the downside?
Maria_Celeste (2490696) writes "Google, which prides itself on building a "better web that is better for the environment", is hosting a fundraiser for the most notorious climate change denier in Congress, it has emerged. The lunch, at the company's Washington office, will benefit the Oklahoma Republican Jim Inhofe, who has made a career of dismissing climate change as a "hoax" on the Senate floor. Proceeds of the 11 July lunch, priced at $250 to $2,500, will also go to the national Republican Senatorial Committee."
