If shame is the only reason to replace it then in my opinion you're
very wrong! :-)
1. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.
2. Be proud that you're putting it to good use and it's doing the job.
If it's performing less than you want or running out of space then
upgrade. Otherwise let it run. What's the uptime? Mine are never that
great as I can't resist the kernel updates.
