Yes, but one should get one's experience on less precious machines

Now, it may be that this person doesn't _have_ any "less precious
machines" to gain experience with. That sucks, yeah, but it's no
reason for tearing a strip up one side and down the other for not
risking damage to a precious machine anyway.

If I had only one computer, no experience, and no way to afford to
replace/repair it if I damaged it, I wouldn't be opening its case
