In the past I installed X on 386 with 4 mega: 1 new window per minute!

On my old 486 with 8 Mega, X it's usable, but very very low.

In my opinion, X run sactisfatory only with 16 mega.

Anycase, X never is Ben Johnson: it's a different thing compared to
MS-Windows; a server, with network functionality.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
