oh most definately!!!  before i bought my dell, i had an old P200/64MB RAM 
Gateway...  win9x was a HOG on that machine, but slackware w/ WindowMaker

yah, the time for windows may be true, but it's because the e-mail client and 
web browser are integrated into the OS... even on my P4, windows takes nearly 
an hour to install... and that doesn't include ANY extra (ie: office) apps...  
a full install of mandrake9 took about the same time and included almost 
everything they had!  (yah know, yah gotta install everything to play with it
