What do you do with old computer stuff?
ValourX writes "After a few years of reviews, I've got a big pile of operating systems and other software that is either several versions out of date or otherwise unable to be used anymore. When I moved to another city, I didn't have the time to sort through them and consider their future, so I put them all in one big box and shipped them to my new house. Now I'm unpacking things and don't know what to do with old copies of such golden oldies as Red Hat Linux 9 and Xandros Desktop 1.0. Does it all just go into the garbage? Should I sell them on eBay? Give them to charity? What do you do with old retail box software? What about old computer books, manuals, and parts?"
