People purchase cars based on mileage - use reduces value.  People
purchase computers based on age - time reduces value.  What you do with it
during that time (presuming it's in a smoke-free environment, etc.) is
pretty irrelevant!  Stealing CPU time is like the wear you put on a park
bench by sitting on it.  We may throw the homeless out of the park, but we
don't account for the wear they put on the bench.
