The aim is to get students interested, motivate them to use their
computers for more than chatting,firefox and games. And hopefully do
this by usage of linux/foss (which obviously has advantages as far as
these aims are concerned).
Hosting a website on your home computer and actually understanding
whats happening while you do that has the |coolness factor" that can
get them rolling.
