1)- My oldest computer in daily use is a 1989, 20Mhz 80286 with 1Mby of 
memory, no HD, only a floppy drive and a yellow hercules monitor running 

With a terminal program with SSH I use NetBSD  from a UNIX shell 
provider and running lynx, links, elinks, mutt, alpine and slrn, all cli 

Other computers running linux:

2)- Pentium II 333Mhz 384Mby runs LXPuppy Linux.

3)- Pentium IV 2.4MHz 1GBy runs LUBUNTU 14.04.1

4)- Celeron 420 1.6Mhz 1GBy runs XUBUNTU 12.04

5)- Celeron 430 1.8Mhz 1Gby runs XUBUNTU 14.04.1

All run very well. I like very much the one running LUBUNTU although 
it's not the fastest machine.
