Yesterday I dug up an old laptop I got back in 1998. It's an AMS Tech TravelPro 101CS with some pretty lowly specs (Pentium 166MHz, 16MB RAM). But what I like is that it's got Red Hat Linux 5.2 installed. That's not RHEL 5.2, it's the old Red Hat Linux 5.2 from 1998. And it still works! It can connect to the internet (slowly) and do lots of other useful stuff (running WindowMaker, of course
). I've attached a screenshot below.
What is the oldest Linux distro you have that still runs on a machine that you own? Note that this question is not
the same as asking about what your oldest machine is; that machine could be running a more current distro.
