No, of course not. The proper response is to dump Windows and run your
choice of Linux/FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD/BSDI on it together with your
favorite Common Lisp, and suddenly your system will seem *much* faster!!


p.s. And don't throw away those old 33 MHz '486 systems, either!
Running any of the Unices, they're plenty fast as dedicated firewalls...
