No,  8-P

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...

> some useful applications on that? I am not afraid that twm, icewm, fluxbox

Generaly I use only the console with mutt, ssh, zgv, ...

The fvwm is only for bad looking guys over my sholder!

Oh yes, I run LILO with a RLE-Image on boottime...
So I can choose "privatenet", "dhcp", "work", ...

Nobody beleave, tat it can be done with this crappy looking
OS  :-P  with endless scrolling textscreens....
