Out of curiosity just downloaded Icaros Desktop Light 1.3.0 - in its
manual one can read:
AROS doesn't need great horsepower [..] Although AROS can run on
low-power and low-end processors, like old 500-1000 MHz ones, you
probably like to choose a faster one. [..] To enjoy a good Icaros
experience, please choose a 1600 MHz processor or a better one [..]

Not tried that new Icaros yet (tomorrow...), but if "good Icaros
experience" requires 1,6 GHz Athlon, then Linux can still be described
as "lightweight"... :)
