MDK 10.1 GUI runs on a P133

Yes it's an old machine, a p133 no bells.
I bumped the RAM to 76MB.
14 inch screen (dying) with black vertical bands both sides of display.
Using BlackBox as the window manager with the Minimal theme.

Installed 10 community to it last year and just upgraded to 10.1 without any problems.
A not so recent version of windows would not even look at this machine.
Naturally it should be a firewall/router or something but my missus wants to play pysol during the soapies while doing my ironing. Now I might be able to get her into Email by routing through my box. So why not?
Yes it is slow but completely usable. Not for intensive graphics of course.
Pysol, Kmail and Galeon take 30 secs to a minute to appear functional. Once up, it works. And well.
