I think you mean to say that the Swedish taxpayers are paying for it,
which I guess begins to explain the high rate of taxation there. A
sizable fraction of the money goes to paying for the electricity to
run old VAXen.

That's okay. Here in the US we've got cheaper gasoline, so all we need
are some large diesel powered generators. I mean if we Americans are
going do destory the earth with our greenhouse gases, we may as well get
some extra life out of those VAX 8000s in the process.
