"I wasn't here for the last XXX number of times that that flamewar raged" 
is not an acceptable reason to deliberately re-ignite it.

It is an easy, fully objective parameter for OLD machines, not for 
"classic" machines, which is subjective.

If you want to create a separate list, where that is the criterion, DO SO.
I will be happy to subscribe to it.
I inherited my mother's Win95 "e-machine", with all the stickers on it; 
who wants it?   I have plenty of old machines, many of which are not 
But age is explicitly NOT part of the criteria on THIS list.

That battle has been fought!.
