I have started to teach the lesser fortunate children in my area about technology and computers in general. Some of them show some real promise and I'm planning to introduce them to Linux and Open Source. Now for practice's sake, I have dedicated my personal desktop and virtualized it (it's been built with standard commodity hardware).
My question is, I had this idea to probably buy the $5 server from Digital Ocean or check out some good deals on Low End Box and probably purchase one such server and virtualize it.
I would like to know the merits of this as I know they are already virtualized and running something like KVM on top of it sounds ludicrous but it was a thought I had. That way, the kids can access the machines from their school's lab whenever they want.
May I know the community's thoughts on this? Or is there a better way to go about this?
