But of course, those perfectly-useful machines could eventually die a
'natural computer death', as well, rather than being junked because
there is no modern OS to run on them.
So far though, they are working well, and going strong, accomplishing
useful tasks for me.
It may surprise a lot of people to hear that the slower machines are
