Well, I use a 486 every day, as a print server*, another one quite often
as a PDP-11 emulator and a Mac SE (68000) most days as a terminal to a
Linux box.  To me these are quite modern machines...

* It actually does more than providing print services, but that's all
I'm using it for.  It will also act as a firewall and router and it runs
a webserver (for remote admin).
