Well, it all depends of the work you have to get done.  E.g. I outfitted
my 386 to be a firewall and it serves that purpose very well.  Having
said that, a) where in my post did I say that I don't consider a 386 to
be a fast machine (which, is true, I don't think it's a fast machine),
and b) what kind of bogus arguement is that anyway?  It's obviously not
fast enough to install Debian, so you get a bigger machine for the job.
