If you have 10 Alphas, why don't you keep your 1 or 2 most favorite
machines and give away the other 8? You may feel sorry later when
getting rid of all of them. If changes like that happen more often, you
may end up with a computer zoo, but this not too bad at all. At least as
long as you stay stuck to Debian. ;-)
