I have committed to a quest to see what the limits of such hardware are; mathematically, it looks feasible. I have a 40Mhz 486DX with 16MB of RAM running on my Arch Linux fork with dynamic content that needs to be tested for Slashdottability. I need your help, and you can become part of 486 history; and potentially beat the Diggers, Redditeers, and Farkers for 486 supremacy! Make a stand by hitting the 486 directly, or you can read my massive blog post about the project."
