I for myself find it useful to see that 'ancient' computers are able to
fulfill my 'everyday' computer needs - and perhabs others will see as well
that for writing a letter no one needs 1Ghz and 512MB ... and in addition
there's a learning effect to deal with systems which can be understood in
it's very detail.

Sorry for giving my 2 cents, while on the list for only a few minutes ;-)
