Low-Spec Hardware? Try these Desktop Environments
I have selected my pick of desktop environments that are excellent candidates for older hardware. They typically run well on low-spec machines, even a system with a Pentium II 266MHz CPU, a processor that is now 16 years old. All of the desktops are released under freely distributable licenses. If your Linux box feels sluggish in general use, try one of the desktops featured below. It may just save you from discarding a perfectly good machine.

It also includes some tools for managing concurrent asynchronous processes within Twisted.
  • Divmod Vertex
    Divmod Vertex is an implementation of Q2Q, a protocol for opening authenticated connections, even through NAT. It allows a user to reliably demonstrate their identity (for distributed authentication) and receive real-time data directly from other users, and provides a mechanism for a user to decide whether they want to expose their IP address to a third party before accepting a peer-to-peer connection.
