I'll bet that those are text-only systems, or a 640x480 VESA X (arguably
worse than text), which wouldn't be a good demo to any non-Linux user.

No, but to run in that much RAM they must be booted in text-only.
DSL can run with very nice X, but it requires at least 32M for that,
I believe.

My point is that there exist very small footprint Linuxes, and a
little research might turn up something for him. I also supplied
a starting point.

You have found the bank of Larn.
