What I find really surprising is the lack of a distro targeting the Windows 95/ME machines that are going to fall out of Microsoft support this year (Win95SE in mid-Jan, WinME at end-Dec). Microsoft has no replacement product for that class of hardware, so those users will be open to alternatives.

Red Hat, SuSE and Mandrake all aim at a higher class of hardware than these Pentium and Pentium II machines.

Debian Woody is a distribution which targets these boxes :-)
