I don't know if this information is useful, however, my old computer has
Intrepid and Hardy and both are working reasonably well. The processor
is an Intl Pentium 4 2.3ghz. Hardy is running KDE 3.5.10 and Intrepid
is running 4.2. I haven't been following this thread, so if you are
only considering AMD OS's, this is not very useful.
