KDE 4 on old hardware

KDE 4 on old hardware
I am typing this post using KDE 4 on Kubuntu Hardy on the following hardware:
350MHz AMD K6-2
256mb RAM
4GB hard drive
wireless (atheros, madwifi driver)

…and it’s usable enough to type that and then freak out and lose half my post. But some of the little animations actually work!

    haha, I was there, I used it, and it ran surprisingly well for a machine of its age and hardware specs.

    I have been rocking a full Gutsy install using Gnome on my old P2 400mhz box for a while now. It doesnt supprise me that KDE4 runs. Heres to keeping old hardware alive.
