We can re-purpose it - we have the technology

from here

True story, my computer died recently. It was in fact an XP machine (with a number of things to mitigate the added risks of using an OS that wasn't supported anymore).

Now it's my new banking PC (a computer I boot from a Linux LiveCD exclusively for the purposes of doing online banking), which is good because the previous one (that says Windows 2000 on the case) was frustratingly slow when used that way.

I wonder what I'll use that older one for now. Boat anchor? Space heater? Step stool?
