The lowest end pc in my network is an old 733 Celeron with 512.

not really low end, but it's my meat an potatoes workstation at work, it's enough for me to do what I need to do. Since my office is a Windows office, when I wanted a linux box, I had to provide my own.

I've got a dual boot system with Ubuntu and DSLinux. While Ubuntu is nice, I find myself in DSLinux more often then not.

While Gnome or KDE run fine, I stay with Fluxbox as I prefer leaving my ram available for apps.
