Who's installing SUSE on Pentium I nowadays?

I do (p233) and it's a sub-laptop, I have no other such machine at hand (and even as second hand it's much too expensive)

of course, I can stay with older version...

what is the real gain? size? speed? and of how much?

there are so many various processors with so many special instruction sets...

I couldn't see any noticeable difference in speed with gentoo built for athlon as opposed to 10.2Alpha4 on the same box, perhaps with suitable measurements, there may have been a speed increase. On the P-II/333/96M+ 2M video under 10.1Alpha3 back in the days, KDE made the box almost unuseable, even a small movement of the mouse took ages to settle so I could do something else, with a lighter window manager, it was quite responsive. With Kubuntu 6.06, it's very useable, none of the lag seen in 10.1Alpha.
It's been a long time since I've seen any distro benchmarks.
Regards
Sid.
