I would like to suggest a minor change to the focus of this project. As there is little reason to develop this project further than it has been (2006) it would be great to see this combined with some others as a grouped project for a more specialized task. It would make great use of older or out modded PC's as an educational tool. I am planning on building a driving simulator that I can donate or loan out for the teaching of driving skills to those that have been historically left out. Those with disabilities (learning) that have prevented them from driving but could possibly learn the skills needed are a big focus point for me.
In this context it could be combined with a distribution or cloud application, driving Sim, controller circuit software and cad for a full featured driving Sim. It could also be used for other areas of importance related to disabilities and training simulation.
