	Many, many. Since I am using a quite old machine with only
	64MB and PowerPC programs seem to be bigger than their x86
	counterparts, I need to use only smaller programs. But I have
	Window Maker and blackbox installed.

	If you also want some Desktop Environments (not window
	managers!) like KDE and GNOME, they are also available.

	Do you *need* rlogin? Can't you use Open SSH?

	Depending on what you need, gcj may be what you want.

	On the other hand, I see that incoming.debian.org has j2sdk1.3
	packages, but they don't seem to have entered debian now.

	It will be worth it.
