I don't know, so I'l leave that question to others. It seems worth
mentioning, though, that because X allows partioning the load
you may be able to get quite good performance from a setup
using one older machine as a X terminal and another as host.

Years ago a penniless friend did that, using a 100 MHz 486

My machine at the time was something like an 800 MHz
Pentium III and he got comparable performance on most
