Oh, I forgot to address this one:

No, you're wrong; it's not usable for bloated software of today, not
for the things that most people do:

"Check out the results! For the functions that people use most often,
the 1986 vintage Mac Plus beats the 2007 AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+: 9
tests to 8! Out of the 17 tests, the antique Mac won 53% of the time!
Including a jaw-dropping 52 second whipping of the AMD from the time
the Power button is pushed to the time the Desktop is up and useable.
...it can be stated that for the majority of simple office uses, the
massive advances in technology in the past two decades have brought
zero advance in productivity".
