"Suppose you have an elderly, early-Pentium PC sitting unused
under a desk. Being environmentally conscious, you want to put it
to use, perhaps as a Web-browsing station, a simple word processor,
or running an in-house Web server. But you don't want an operating
system that exceeds the hardware's capabilities.
"Fortunately, there are Linux distributions specifically
designed for older hardware. Two examples are antiX Linux and
"antiX Linux has a boot-image footprint that's roughly 400MB in
size. Based on MEPIS Linux, antiX was created by MEPIS community
member Paul Banham, known in the MEPIS community as
"anticapitalista." MEPIS is a popular Linux distribution; antiX is
not an official MEPIS project."
