    I can see both sides of the argument here. I usually don't care for old hardware, but hey, if it works fine for you, great. There shouldn't be any reason for you to be forced to upgrade if something's working 100%.

    At the same I recognize that technology keeps progressing, it keeps moving forward and sometimes people need to finally upgrade their hardware to be able to use new software, gain more performance, get additional/new features etc.

    It's a tough call, but there's a reason why there are distro's out there specifically geared towards supporting older hardware.

      Not everybody has 5 year old hardware and wants to keep it.
      i wouldn't mind being given some 5 year old hardware :] got spares? ;-)

      personally i can't believe i will need a faster and better pc anytime soon (i run gentoo and it needs a lot of cpu power at times, btw).

      i'm perfectly fine with what i have right now. remember the way it was when people were happy with their 800mhz p3's and didn't feel the urge to upgrade? i get that weird feeling that this time might come back soon.
