i've been running netscape/communicator 4.7 since it came out on a potato
system (with the libc5 stuff still in stalled) on a pentium with 128 mb of
ram with no real problems.  so times java will crash it, and sometimes a
plugin will crash it but mostly it's fine.  the trick is to run the libc5
version not the glibc one.

it's a shame to have to keep the libc5 stuff installed but i need it for wp8
as well so ...
