An older system offline could be useful for many things. People have 
used old computers even to get paralyzed people back in the game with 
speech. It could also run special projects, education or a kiosk. Be 
careful though.

A new system fully patched still could be risky online if people always 
trust the status quo and what's popular, without thinking it through.

Some things (like security patches) are popular for very good reasons. 
But other things not so much. The powers that be can only protect you to 
an extent - and sometimes we need protection from the powers that be. To 
survive and thrive, we need independent thinking too.

Best wishes,
