  I'm doing both. I like preserving nice hardware but I also use it -
  after all it's going to die one way or the other eventually so why
  not use it as long as it works? There is time enough for having it
  just to look at when it's really broken.

  Regarding "restoration" I'm open to anything that keeps the system
  in a working shape. Using a modern disk in an old Sun is ok,
  replacing the logic board with a Mini ITX board is not.
