Yup.  :)

Now that's an attachment in some email from Aunt Tilly, and you barely notice 
the time spent downloading it.  It really is amazing how things have changed.

I don't see them changing that much in the future though, or not as rapidly 
anyway.  For instance, I've had a vastly better computer sitting in the 
closet since Mom died.  This one is working fine, and it doesn't feel slow at 
all.  Neither does the one this one replaced, for that matter.  It's gotten 
to the point where upgrading is just silly unless you're playing 3D action 
games at 1600x1200 or something, which Linux is useless for anyway.
