Hello.

The key to running KDE3 with PIII is 512MB<=RAM I think. With 768MB RAM and
1400...@1300mhz PIII I'm not using swap at all (stripped KDE3/7.2-STABLE). 
I'm runnig opera-devel, firefox35 (fresh ports tree). If memory serves me
right, 
PIII 750/1000Mhz wasn't that bad either. Also, with 512MB it was swapping a
little
only when compiling something heavy. OO.o could be not usable tho.
