Gotta Spare Monitor?

Does anyone have an old working monitor lying around waiting to be taken to the dump or given away?

Tuxmachines could use a couple/few good displays. Mine started failing a while back and now most of them are shot.

I know it's not exactly cheap to ship old CRTs, but I don't mind them if you can swing it. In fact, I think I still prefer their "picture" to that of newer LCDs. But LCDs are great too.

If you have a good working monitor or two that you could donate to the cause and get listed on the Wall of Appreciation, please email me at tuxmachines at gmail for a shipping address.

Thank you so much,
Susan

Update: Tuxmachines could use a coupla new DVD burners and SATA hard drives as well.

Update 2: As shipping and such can sometimes be costly, if you'd rather send a donation specifically for hardware, you may do so and send a note specifying that it's for hardware:

7 Ways Linux Users Differ from Windows Users

To casual users, one person at a keyboard looks much the same as any other. Watch for a while, however, and the differences start to emerge -- and whether they are using Linux or Windows is the least of them. The fact is, Linux users are different from Windows users in attitude as much as their choice of operating system. Originating as a Unix-type operating system and in opposition to Windows, Linux has developed an expectation and a philosophy in direct opposition to those promoted by Windows. Although many new Linux users have come directly from Windows, average Linux users simply do not react in the same way as Windows users. Read more
