    "Beige" PowerMacintosh G3/266 (OC'd to 300MHz), running Debian 4.

    It was a pain to get it set up (because of it being an "Old World ROM" machine and therefore not capable of booting up from a non-Apple-generated OS), but once it was set up, it runs like champ. It's not turned on at the moment, but I have it configured with Samba and Apache, and it handles all of that with great aplomb.
    Have you ever found something in the second-to-last place you looked?
    If it seems like I am ignoring you, perhaps I am.

    Not the oldest or slowest, but definitely with the least memory I've worked with.

    Slackware on a 33 MHz 486.

    But I've also installed Minix on a 286, and NetBSD on a Mac SE/30.

    I was going to take moms computer when she was planning on getting a laptop.
    That computer had:
    133mhz
    32mb RAM
    I have no idea what graphic card it was
    and a whopping 900MB HDD SPACE!!
    Unfortunately, that computer died right before I could convert it... after 12 years of use.

    Now the oldest one I have is the one I'm at right now.
    1.8Ghz
    1Gb RAM
    2x100GB HDD
    ATI Radeon 9800 PRO

    If it wasn't for the graphic card I would be very happy with the computer Running Ubuntu right now, it doesn't like my card so I'm playing around in Virtualbox right now, looking for other distros.

    My 486DX2 (66 MHz) with 4 MB RAM, in 1994. Ofcourse Windows 95 wasn't out yet at that time, I was running MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 on it, and Slackware Linux.
    Ubuntu 12.04
