I've been using Yoper now for a few months, on an old P3 laptop (650) and have been very impressed with the performance on this slow machine.
I've been so impressed that I've just donated money to the yoper project (even though I too am against paying for an OS, donation is good ^^ ).
I just want to ask, is Yoper still alive? The Yoper website has been talking about new servers being installed, but its been a week since they were supposed to be back up. Are you still there Yoper? Please don't leave me....
