I find the ongoing so-called "old computer challenge" quite funny, because many of the machines are newer that what I actually use daily for various tasks and it never occured to me doing a challenge from that. Last summer I replaced my desktop with a 950MHz AMD Duron for a whole month and it was no big deal. As I said: funny stuff.

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.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
