As Jope said it's not exactly a zippy system on a classic set-up.
But do remember enjoying myself on a pretty basic config (A1240/40/32Megs) running the text console in two colours. The scrolling was reasonably fast even in laced modes. I mean there are plenty of nice and useful utils that just need a dumb terminal or ncurses.
Now I can only imagine installing linux for kicks (if you're into that sort of thing) since most of the Linux programs I would find myself running have AmigaOS ports or are part of GeekGadgets anyway.
