While nothing is perfect and nothing can meet everyone's needs, Debian and KDE as they are today remain quite useable on minimal machines in the right situations. The ticket for these older boxes is to deploy them as X Terminals within a LAN. I don't have any 386 machines, but I do have some as minimal as 486SX 33 with 8MB and can assure you that KDE 2.x and applications like the Star Office suite can be used on these little beasts.
