I wonder what happens to all the hardware decommissioned by Google and Amazon and the like. They all run really custom systems, sometimes with semi-custom CPUs. That's a lot of still-useful hardware, but it almost certainly just ends up in the dump 😟

@Zuph I have some old facebook servers circa ~2013. at that time they were still custom hardware, but there was nothing crazy proprietary or custom silicon involved like they probably have now.
