Xfce Before we begin, here's what XFce's website has to say about itself: XFce is a lightweight desktop environment for unix-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and easy to use. It's based on the GTK+ toolkit version 2.

"I'm interested what distribution and browser you install on those old computers?"

On PUSCII we generally use Debian GNU/Linux. Some run FreeBSD and one RedHat computer. We also experiment with Live CD's like Knoppix, Clustered Knoppix, Dyne Bolic, etc.

As browser we use Galeon. We used Opera in the past. Mozilla Firefox is also installed and occasionally used. Lynx and Dillo also IIRC.

Can't speak about the other ones.

"Ever tought of how much electricity those computers waste ? =/"

Yes. Old PC's use generally less energy than newer ones. Also a problem for us. One option to cut costs slightly is to use a multihead together with a faster one (700-1000 for 3) as explained on the ASCII website.
