What do you intend to use the system for? If it's not something where
security is critical, then NetBSD 1.5 may be a viable (but unsupported)
option. It performs very well on low spec hardware, and is broadly
similar in features to Linux 2.2.x. The 1.6 release is still supported,
and may also be more suitable for your needs than 2.0.
One is not superior merely because one sees the world as odious.
