No, neither Linux nor Gentoo are freeware.
Open Source Software is the correct term, there is a big difference.

spank fussion ...on a K6 How did it run ? xp min requirement is a pent 2 333 or something like that. I personally would not recommend xp for anything under pent 3 700mhz 128 meg 256 better.

alexpattison Try the linux first, they are free. Then maybe get a friends xp cd and install it, do not try and activate or register, just use it till it times out. If you like it by a copy of xp.

XP actually runs on surprisingly low specs. Like I said, I had it running normally on that K6-2, and I think someone else mentioned on here that they had it running on a 366 Pentium 2.

I wouldn't wish Windows ME on my worst enemy. It's terrible.
