This begs a follow-up poll (or at least, another geek purity test) -- "Of the computers that you own, how many are operational?"

    I'm still using WordPerfect on my NEC laptop with a blazing 6MHz processor and 20Mb disk drive. I don't know if that counts as running, though. The clock can't handle dates after 1990. Oh well, even if I don't count that one, I'm still at 10+. Follow-on polls: How many of your computers run PERL? How many of your computers are connected to a network? How many of your computers are connected to more than one network?
