Consoles to plug digital divides?

Consoles to plug digital divides?
We need more computers for the developing world - so what about old games consoles, wonders technology analyst Bill Thompson writing for the BBC

Bill points how new games platfroms leads to old ones been thrown away . The thought provoking piece talks of linux of Playstation (yes Sony do supply one legally) see article at

and Xbox can also support linux but Microsoft obviously don’t allow it.
The argument is that simple games platforms can be modifyed to allow access to those in developing countries to the internet and other computer functions ..

Sounds a great idea.
