Its true: I ran KDE3 on my athlon-tbird 750 MHz with 64M RAM without problems.
And I am running it also on a 233MHz laptop with 96M RAM. As long as you don't
multitask too many things, it's quite acceptable
--> I am using KDE because of KDevelop and it's integrated suite of network
and PIM utilities
PS: but on that laptop, it takes me 2 or 3 days to compile the most needed
