Considering the nature of the Phoronix web site, I imagine readers and forum participants are bleeding edge types. Anything determined to be "old" by such people means obsolete and a waste of time. "Old" things are not "shiny." Doesn't matter to such people that old things remain functional. Shiny is all that counts to them. :)

All people do things that to others are deemed a waste of time. The old adage prevails that one person's junk is another person's treasures. We live in a big world but many people won't accept that.
