Well, not too long ago, I was using miktex 1.20e on an AMD 586  
@100MHz I think it was (in a Fujitsu Point 510), and now I'm using  
the latest miktex as well as w32tex on a Pentium 233MHz.

I also still occasionally use TeX on my NeXT Cube (40MHz 68040), but  
that's not been up-dated for a long while.
