    I guess they've suddenly got lots of otherwise unusable intel servers with too many spectre exploits.
    Intel provides even better servers but without wine: https://software.intel.com/en-us/devcloud
    Microsoft: https://notebooks.azure.com/
    Kaggle: https://www.kaggle.com/notebooks
    And I'm sure there're others.

    Code:
