Not necessarily. I have rather a lot of legacy hardware (it outweighs
the more modern stuff) and that legacy hardware is _loads_ more useful
than the modern stuff in that it can actually do stuff like run a network
(such as running kerberos servers, httpd, mtas, etc). Modern ARM
machines typically don't have ways to attach mass storage to them which
make them hellishly limited for such applications.

I'm planning to continue using my old machines, and continue to upgrade
their kernels, especially in order to keep up to date with security
issues.
