Useful GUI apps on low-mem computers?

Greetings all,

Our local Free Software User Group has a large number of donated
computers, each having 64MB of RAM and a PII or PIII processor.  We are
intending to configure these computers with a useful set of software and
make them available for use by low-income people in our community.  We
have no budget for buying more memory.

My question is, if you had a computer with 64 MB of RAM, and you wanted
to give the novice user the ability to browse the web, use e-mail,
instant messaging, create documents and spreadsheets, etc.   What window
manager and GUI applications would you choose?
