Indeed. I did that for a friend’s i486 laptop, and I’ve got one of those
myself as well except it has 12 MiB. MirBSD works – barely. (I could go
multiuser on the 12 MiB RAM one, but decided to not do it; it’s enough
for 3 virtual consoles, GNU screen, lynx, ssh client, tinyirc. Not my
regular IRC client sirc, as that one’s written in Perl. So, definitively
no stock Linux distribution…)

Don't tell me. My Amiga also has only 12 MiB of Fast RAM. Where are
the days my Amiga was mailserver for 70 people, many of them logging
in remotely to read their email with pine? Debian is getted too bloated,
I have less packages (incl.daemons) installed than 12 years ago, but the
system is still much slower.

I really need more time to work on an OpenWRT-based solution ;-)

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
