Sure, my Tek 549 and 564 are storage oscilloscopes with the novel technique
of keeping the phosphor glowing and all, but they have some vacuum tubes
replaced by transistors so I'm not sure I'd call them vintage. ;-)

Jokes aside, old digital scopes can probably be seen as less useful and
more hopeless than the slightly older analog scopes they replaced (and once
were better than).

And if they’re really old they have a disk drive rather than an USB jack…

Disk what? (-:
