PsychOS486 for i486DX/i586/i686 computers with CD-ROM drives

PsychOS486 for i486DX/i586/i686 and newer computers
https://psychoslinux.gitlab.io/486/index.html

PsychOS486 is a GNU/Linux distribution with i486DX computers in mind, hence the name. In other words, a numeric co-processor is required and the newer the computer, the better; i586 and i686 users are fine as well.

Planet M.U.L.E. is a free clone of a old economics video game, but with much better graphics. It is rather addicting, but somewhat frustrating if you don't take the time to read the how-to-play guide, which explains in detail all the...
