Of course I don't, and won't.

I was just replying to the guy that told me that I am using archaic
hardware and that it makes building ruby slow.

I do use a number of PIII servers (more than Xeon) and am very happy
with them.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to aggravate you in any way. PIII is not
archaic, but it's certainly old. Nevertheless, we've got a number
of PIII boxes in production, and even some older Cyrix ones in
our lab - and are quite happy with them.

Old hardware is just a half of the deadly recipe. The other half
is old FreeBSD. Again, we've got one dual PIII box running
FreeBSD 4.7 - under very heavy load with no issues. YMMV,
but I would upgrade to 6.1 or 6.2 all the same.
