I run 6.0 on a Pentium 100 with 128MB.  It is very responsive 
at the command line, but unusably slow with KDE or GNOME and 
apps like Firefox - although they do work. With XFCE, it is not 
too bad; just needs a little patience.

Why do I bother? I have had the machine since 1997, and it 
has never failed. It has been powered up almost continuously, 
and serves as a backup device every night.  When it breaks, it is
out of here.
