This OS can allegedly run on a Pentium 3 with 128MB of RAM to hand over, though I'm running it on an Atom N270 (which has the processing power of about a Pentium 3 anyway) with 2GB of RAM.

I'm impressed so far. I only found it by chance when browsing the PCLinuxOS Forums, and it was explained as the only distro for someone who was able to fully replace Windows XP with it. While the aesthetic of the XPQ4 project matches almost exactly the Windows XP user interface, it isn't perfect, but for a free project it is considerably impressive! I'd suggest checking it out and installing the XP interface with it.

It does seem to use a network installer so don't expect installation to be fast but after that it works really nicely as previously described.

I've tried it out on a VM before and was rather impressed with it. I'm thinking of trying it out as an XP replacement on a Pentium M laptop like a ThinkPad T42.
