I have a perfectly usable Pentium 3 system, with 512 megabytes RAM, and 
a speed of 930 (some 900-number) megahertz.  I could put a DVD drive in 
that one, if needed.  It boots from USB using Plop.

I have a MacBook (32-bit), running Mac OS X, with a Lubuntu partition.  
It only has a CD drive, but I can get it to boot from USB.

A machine that is too slow to bother with for one person, can be just 
fine for another.  It depends on what you use it for.

The people using such machines should decide if they want to keep using 

I strongly resist the idea of someone else declaring (based on their own 
usage patterns) that other peoples machines should no longer be supported.
