Proposal to try Cyanogenmod experiment with phones (Alec)

Cyanogenmod (a community-maintined Android distribution) can extend the life of an Android-based phone that's no longer supported by a service provider by permitting a recent version of Android to run. I propose we try an experiment with Cyanogenmod: take an informal survey of phone stock to see whether it would be useful to try; load Cyanogenmod onto a couple of phones to start the documentation process; and then return to an upcoming monthly meeting with a concrete proposal for how/whether to use Cyanogenmod at FG.

This would open us up to using operating systems like Mint, the World most popular version of Linux, as well as opening up the use of other Ubuntu 14.04 distro's, it would also allow us to us OS X maverick apples free software for Mac's, and the free use of flash as is used on our current installs.
