FreeBSD 13 brings some good for the POWER/PowerPC crowd!
Slackware 1.1.2 with FVWM 1.2 on an AMD 386DX40 with whopping 20 MB of RAM. Booted from a 200MB notebook IDE drive, removed from the Compaq Contura 3/25, where it was replaced by a CF card. I wanted to test some Trident 9000 cards before selling them and nothing better was available. The install happened in 2018 from floppies. Except for the Y2K bug in date command it was a nice OS. And still is, which is why all my PCs run current version of Slackware. And also Raspberry Pi. And MacBook.
