This program got picked up by Google:

"...ChromeReady is designed to bring new life to older Mac and Windows computers.
Neverware was founded in 2011 with a focus on helping the US K-12 education system revive aging computers that may have struggled as Windows and macOS added features to take advantage of higher-performing CPUs and more memory. The lower requirements of a Chromium-based operating system meant these older machines would perform as well as when new. Neverware used the name CloudReady to play upon the increasing focus on cloud services, which was a necessity for its operating system. Just as Chrome OS requires most tasks to be handled in the Chrome browser, CloudReady relies upon the Chromium browser. CloudReady started as an education solution, but it is now available to the public as well."
Evidently the project will continue in it's current state, though I don't expect it to remain static over the years. Standard efforts to sell user data should be expected, but I can see this program still being useful to a LOT of people. Its not as if millions of old computers are going anywhere, except maybe a landfill.
