I'm a bit more pragmatic. Whatever it takes to get something running,
I'll do it. For me, that's the entire point of having the old stuff
around. Otherwise, a non-working box is scarcely better than any other
piece of antique e-waste. If there's an accurate emulation available on
modern hardware, I'll use that rather than play with some old, cranky
piece of iron.
Others may certainly have different opinions.
