Okay, so that doesn't quite look like the oldest PC in the world, but it is running Jolicloud 1.1. And now so can many 10+ year old computers. The good guys at Jolicloud have updated the latest version of its Linux / Chromium-based operating system to support all sorts of old computer hardware, including legacy NVIDIA cards like TNT, TNT2, Quadro and early GeForce. Of course, you'll still need at least 384MB of RAM to make it purr and you'll want to make sure that you can connect to the net to take advantage of all the cloud-based applications. Oh, you're still here? Dig out that old Gateway 2000 and start installing!
