"five year old servers and four year old PCs"
So that's supposed to be a problem ?
This is just what has been waiting to happen for a decade. Four-year-old PCs ? Gosh, what an infamy ! Employees should benefit from a 2% performance increase every 3 years, not 4 !
Come on, a PC in a business environment can work 6 years just fine. Managers will just have to put up with not getting the latest and greatest to surf porn with on the job.
Honestly, I'm surprised that they're working the servers longer than the PCs. I don't care how important you think you are, but the server you work on is doing more than your PC is.
