Personally I think I get just as much enjoyment - if not more - out of the
sound/feel/smell of an old machine as I do from the actual running of software
on it. In other words, all the stuff that a modern machine (either in
emulation or with native software), *doesn't* provide.
I end up not caring how slow, unreliable, power-hungry or anything else the
old system is - it's still more fun!
