Hi all! I'm Typing this from my LC 520, which is currently running 7.6.1; However I'm not sure if that's the best OS for this computer. It has 36MB of ram and a 1GB Hard drive that I've put in. It does not have an FPU, though I'm looking into getting one.

Hard Drive space clearly isn't an issue, but I'm curious about performance. Would downgrading to an earlier version of the OS significantly Improve performance, or would it be negligible?
What Version of 7 would be Ideal for this machine? Would I lose compatibility with a significant number of programs? And what features would I lose from downgrading to, say 7.0.1 or 7.1 or something?

Hi Flan,

With 36MB of RAM, 7.6.1 should run just fine!

I have an LC III with 32MB of RAM and moved it from 7.1 to 7.5 without noticing any slow down.

I actually prefer 7.5 or 7.6 to 7.1 because it handles my Ethernet card better.
