I remember the old days before KDE and Gnome, when the only GUI options were Motif and a couple of other managers. I was running on a 386 with 8 meg RAM. That was Slackware 1.0.x. I still have the CD here. It would run on any 386 and only used about 32meg of HD space. There was no GUI installer and if you wanted a GUI interface, you had to manually run the configuration from the command line. Things have come a long way...
