This is sad...

Even the people who do save hardware for collectors tend to dump any 
original software they have, plus many hardware collectors don't bother with 
legit software.

Well, I agree, sometimes the machine is disassmbled in a way that harms the
components, or vital components are thrown away/re-cycled because 'they 
seem like they are useful/valuable' (case in point, cables - people save the
boards, and throw away the cables - as a result of which, for many boards, 
have more boards than we need, and no cables).

On the other hand, if this stuff _wasn't_ worth money, most people would 
re-cycle it, or pitch it. That would be better?
