Haha!

In truth, this machine is used only for audio production, and the
hardware won't handle an OS upgrade. A new machine means all new
production software, too. Too much investment at this time for
something that still works and works well. (Its ability to track and
mix songs far exceeds my ability to write and perform them.) I can't
recall what version of Subversion is on it, but it doesn't matter
because our compatibility policies are and have always been awesome! :-)
