Actually - and not specifically to MS bash, but I think the bulk of 
hardware upgrades are due to MS OS upgrades.  Move from 98 to XP, new 
machine.  Move XP to vista, huge new hardware.  Vista to 7, new hardware 
again likely.

My task for today: rebuild asterisk on a dell desktop from 2003.  Which 
funnily enough, is an upgrade to the PIII machine that's running in the 
back closet right now.
