Considering the fact I ran it for years on an 8mHz '286, I can't see what
you are complaining about :-) 

Roughly it should be equivalent to a 150 mHz 80286, so you should IMHO be
so lucky. 

I did a lot on that machine, including email (via uucp), usenet, C programing,

It even came with a device drivers development kit. (extra cost option)
