Compile Farms for Commercial Software?

CFN Re:dumbass (32 comments)

"I'd probably just tell him to buy the novel hardware. I bought a very nice Indigo2 for $400-odd a few months back, and it's a cooler experience to have the real equipment someplace"

How is this a solution to the problem he wants solved?

He wants to test his software on many different platforms (different OSs, different CPS, multi-cpu machines), and more importantly, he wants to test it on the CURRENT platforms his (potential) customers use.

How does buying one, 10 year old machine, in anyway approximate what he needs done?
You know, maybe he can just use the Commodore 64 and Apple II I have lying in my basement.
