I think it's a good idea to keep old computers (which are not used any more, 
may be thrown away soon), install Linux on them and use them for few tasks 
only which both need be done in a secure environment and can be considered 
little dangerous (like online banking and OpenPGP email at higher security 

This is very simple, everybody can do that. It does not cause costs for many 
poeple (or just little). Windows and Mac users get used to using Linux. No 
technical preparation is necessary, just the idea needs to get spread.

I have written a German article about that:

If many people from the Cryptoparty community and other affected groups (e.g. 
FSF) like this idea then a kind of campaign could be started to spread this 

• create a logo
• talk about it at Cryptoparties
• tell the media
