This is a bad thing? Can't be much worse than what I have to listen to at my workstation 3 hours after a second helping of refried beans. Just don't put it out front of the mix.
Man, there's alot of repressed hostility in this thread. If I were actually concerned, I would make a track inspired by folk music fused with an uninspired Jarre/Vangelis/Yanni mashup, using only DX7 Rhodes, side-chained kick drums on the whole mix, TB303, lots of gated snare rushes, random dubstep wobbles and pan flute melodies that people could have a nice guffaw or two at, just to prove you're all wrong and there exists some level of entertainment value in anything that makes noise.
Correction, just so you all would have to complain about something else
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.
