Note that you won't be able to test them, so it seems a little pointless, unless you have an old machine with linux on it, and want to use a newer, faster one to compile stuff, then test on it...

This life is a test.  It is only a test.  Had this been an actual life, you would have received further instructions as to what to do and where to go.
