DSL/Debian/Ubuntu/GNU/Linux (yes, I installed DSL, followed by Debian packages, followed by updating to Ubuntu-5.04 packages, followed by recompiling all of the GNU packages [and Lua, and vim] from source, followed by compiling a tuned kernel-2.4.32) currently serves as my only OS on a 564MHz early i686. I got it because I prefer speed to UI - in fact my window manager only usually serves to run Abiword, aterm (read: vim, bash, gcc, etc.), and xmms. I'm thinking of grabbing the jwm source soon and doing a recompile, followed by source optimization for my needs, so that I can use even less resources.
eTower 566.12, 32MB RAM, 7GB HD, 200MB swap, 1x USB v.1, Intel 810GFX, Intel 810 Audio.
Recompiled so far: Pretty much everything. I think I'll have to do a remaster to cut the growing bloat off my system.
