I got them as a build cluster running various *nixes, 2,3 each. Originally got them because they are 64-bit capable, and why I had enough dumpster Athlon XPs, none of them were 64-bit capable.

Yes, they are only 20-30% faster than running the same build virtualbox on my main machine, but I can run multiple ones at the same time. I typically boot them 3 times per release cycle (typically 9 months). A pre check build before branching, release candidate and final release.

Unfortunately, since the original plan, the number of targets that I build exploded, so probably this approach is on the way out.
