LOL.  Actually, I don't think Windows 98 will run in 16MB - but I know for a
fact that Win95 will.  CDs are pretty easy to find in any decent sized
corporate or government office.  Whenever I feel a real need for one I can
find one in the office. Odds are, they'd even be legal (at least you'd get
a disk complete with license key, and the computer it was originally sold
with is now scrap).

That same 16MB Windows machine ran KDE 2 (albeit badly)
