Debian is Free Software -- you have the freedom to do what you want
with it.  (It just so happens that usually Debian is also $$ free)  I
think it would be great to put debian on an old (or new) machine to
donate to someone.  The only downside is the steep learning curve of
Unix-like systems.  If there is a unix-knowledgeable person to
administer the system and teach/guide new users then Debian would be
great for it.  (The stability is a bonus you get for free <wink>)
