I still use a 20 Mhz 80286 with 1MBy of memory. No hard drive, only a 
1.44 floppy. It runs IBM PC-dos. The display is an amber hercules 9" 
monitor.

In one floppy I have the OS, the packet drivers, DC file manager, 
Telnet, SSH and more than 500KBy free.

I regularly use it as a terminal to run BSD in SDF.ORG server where I 
run elinks, links, lynxs, mutt, alpine, slrn and tin.

In the rest of my computers I run Xubuntu 14.04
