I have been using RTEMS on a 40 MHz 386sx with no co-processor (using 
soft floating point). I run my application on three different OSs -- 
RTEMS, Windows, and Mac OSX, using hooks to the underlying OS to manage 
threads, I/O, and other platform dependent stuff.

My application runs faster with RTEMS on the 40 Mhz 386 than it does on 
a 1.13 GHz Athlon (256 MB Ram) running Win2k. I have this documented in 
a research paper.  The performance I get from RTEMS is exceptional, and 
the support from this forum is magnificent.
