Wrong guess, minus five! I was listening to rock and roll and driving my parents bonkers long before you were born. :)

Wanting a faster connection is not the same as having one. When broadband is unavailable, which is true in many rural and less developed regions, then wanting won't change that. :)

Linux based systems often are touted as a way to extend the life of older hardware. Frankly, with what I have seen in free/libre software the past few years, that statement long ago vanished from any truth like the dew on a hot sunny morning. As I said, devs seldom design or test their software on older hardware. Short of minimalistic window managers, the only remaining full desktop environments for older hardware are LXDE, Xfce, and TDE. And Xfce is getting bloated too.
