Distribution: slackware 13.1,13.37,14.0,14.1,14.2 64 and 32bit and arm
32bit for most stuff, wine needs it anyway, and for a (recent to me) laptop, no PAE as it is an old one which doesn't support it. xwindows with kde is still nice and responsive with only 768mg ram (mind you, I remember win95 and 4mb ram)
I am using 32-bit Slackware on an HP Laptop and also on a custom desktop, both about 7 years old. I have no real plans on getting a new machine soon, as the ones I have seem to be running fine and do everything I need them to do.
My fileserver , an old powerhouse desktop from years ago, currently running 13.37 and will soon get an upgrade of more storage space and a fresh install of 14.0. It can't run 64-bit (Athlon XP), but works great running a simple RAID NFS server, and will continue until I run out of socket A motherboards to throw at it or I upgrade my desktop a few years from now.
