"a quick low cost way to get started" started with what?
Possibly as a way of using a Macintosh without having a Macintosh machine
[ although I manage that quite adequately, and have recently been
fooling around with Mac OS 10.9 and
but as a way of getting started with Livecode this doesn't make sense at
A kid who was doing some stuff with Livecode with me this Summer turned
out to have no computer
at home and no money worth talking about.
We got hold of a Pentium 4 with 512 MB RAM, keyboard, monitor
(cathode-ray tube) and a mouse for the
princely sum of about $40, installed Xubuntu 12.04 and Livecode.
[ I also dug a DVD burner, an additional 512 Megs of RAM and an 80 Gig
PATA HD out of my "graveyard" ]
Works a charm!
The "$1 per hour" sidesteps the cost of paying for internet as well.
It also sidesteps the privacy question.

Why would one want to do this?

Sent from a machine cobbled together from second-hand spare parts.
