So, this would be fine for an old machine where the most
complicated use (besides a browser) would be doing C++/xlib
Note - I don't mind updating packages from time to time, but I
really hate having to wipe the machine to do a conplete install
of a conplete installation (horrible phrasing that was). Sounds
like this is not an issue with Arch (with which I have zero experience).
