Please understand that getting replacement parts won't be a problem
for at least a dozen years. It's really simple to understand.

There are newcomers to Linux and Debian everyday. This isn't going to
stop. Those people have potentially old hardware stored somewhere for
some reasons (they're called "geeks", or "nerds" sometimes).

You'll always find somebody willing to donate hardware to Debian. This
is a fact; it happened before. (and we've still got EBay -- the
Project bought replacement parts off of EBay already in the past).
