Is that right? Or am making a big mistake here? Hi!
Well, -current is always bleeding edge, and even on "standard" hardware it might produce weird results. OTOH, I have a 233MHZ Pentium-MMX (Socket7)-dual CPU as Workstation here, with 5.2.1-R, and its running fine for everydays application. The critical issue here is RAM, I have 128MB in it, and well, its enough to have firefox running, but in most cases, I only need some xterms... So I would say, that your hardware (given that there are more than 16MB RAM in there) will run fine.
