My daughter just got back from a missionary trip to Burkina Faso in
Africa and her experience was just exactly what you described. An old
donated, end-of-life laptop with intermittent connectivity when the
electricity was available. We got 4 short emails (which were composed
offline) because of these difficulties.
JSword would not have been a download option. It might not have been an
installation option from a CD.
My response to the thread was to Davy, who is putting together a Linux
distribution CD. It was not to suggest that JSword was an appropriate
Humorous aside, at the airport to come home, she realized that she had a
Swiss army knife in her bag and had to leave it there. She gave it to
the missionary, who did not have such basic tools and was very
appreciative to receive it.
