@256 I mean, can it run a web browser, stream video, and maybe an emulator? That’s about as much as it needs to not be obsolete for a lot of people.
@256 @brocolie by this standard, any machine that can run modern enough versions of Firefox with an adblocker (to reduce bloat from those ads) and has working hardware accelerated video is not obsolete. So relatively low bar.
Probably a well designed web video player with no ads or ads blocked, is a good metric.
@256 I still have mine. It belonged to my aunt and when she finally upgraded to a better machine she gave it to me. I fixed it up and used it as a personal server for over a decade.
The original server operated by the Mastodon gGmbH non-profit
