Default New Life For Old Hardware

http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=legacy

Dusted off an ancient AMD-K5-256 megs of ram, it lives!

Last two OS's were Windows 95 and Red Hat 7.2

Very surprised with this, and quite happy, if you have some old pc/laptop what have you to lose but a little time.
Used a CD-RW to burn it to, still have it for other things not even a CD-R wasted.

Thanks for this. Just what my old PC needs. It has P-III. I had installed Mint Linux on it earlier, but it was still very slow in operation. I may try this one out. Although I won't be using Linux a lot, but still I like to play .
