I have ONLY a Laptop Toshiba 486/DX50 with 12 MB of memory
which is now 13 years old :-)
It runs Woody with Linux 2.4.27, vga16fb and fvwm 2.5.12
Installation requires arround 1-5 days...

Generaly I use only the console with mutt, ssh, zgv, ...
The fvwm is only for bad looking guys over my sholder!

OS :-P with endless scrolling textscreens....
