Without going into nearly the same detail as Jeff, I agree that
another machine like combobox would be great. I think, between two
such machines, we would be able to replace all of the unsupported
hardware. This should allow us to segregate services into VMs and
better manage resources per-service.

I also agree that a setup like this would fix the issue we have with
fixed.g.o. Anytime builds start up on that machine it becomes
completely unresponsive. One or two dedicated build VMs would be a
nicer solution.

I think the biggest concern really is that nearly all of the hardware
is end of life so we're just asking for a disaster. One more new
machine lets us safely move all these services onto supported
