I have a Pentium 3 733 MHZ with 384 MBs RAM running Slackware 12 as my FTP
server, and I have a 433 MHz Celeron with 192 MBs of RAM whih has a small
Windows 98 SE partition for Magic: The Gathering, because the version I have
won't work on NT based stuff (The original one only worked on 9X) and I have
the rest for FreeBSD and Slackware and it works fine.
I generally use Window Maker on that, but FVWM works fine too, and on
Slackware 13.0 I had KDE4 working on it. It lagged a little but not as much
as I thought it would.
Enlightenment E17 even works fine on it.
