These people don't need the power of an Xbox. A super-cheap machine that allows them to increase the literacy rate and education level of the entire population is more important than a fancy GUI.

yes, but why teach someone linux syntax instead of english? they should be using a gui. or just an NES game that improves english

I guess that helps explain in more detail why the emulators and roms I have for that run so well on my computer.  NES is the best system ever.

why not mod something like an xbox? it's a little bit more expensive but will have thousands of times the processing capability.

 

That said, I want to mod my NES to fold. I'll expect my first WU in a decade.
