This counter-argument is flawed. Why limit oneself to one's own 
household? (Garage? Basement?) Get out more! Visit a friend. Talk to an 
internet cafe owner for a special deal to run one's own programs. Rent 
virtual machine time in the cloud. There are many creative, flexible, 
low-cost possibilities.

If one wants to.
