You don't know the right people.
The oldest PC that I have is a Dell laptop that is at least 15 years old, runs Antix Linux ( http://antix.mepis.org/index.php?title=Main_Page
), and it runs ... well, like a 15-year-old laptop. But it runs. I can stream fullscreen video over a wireless LAN without a hitch. Specs are:
6 Gig Hard Drive
128 Megs of RAM
The cell phone that I had three generations ago had more oomph than that.
My desktop PC is a bit more powerful and runs Linux Mint ( http://linuxmint.com/
). In 2.5 years it has never crashed. Not once. No BSOD, no lockups, no viruses, no (major) problems.
