Trinity on older hardware

Do you have experience with running Trinity on older hardware?

I have a PI and a PII. For years I ran KDE 3.5.10 on both. While 
hardly the fastest hardware, and 3.5.10 hardly the snappiest 
desktop environment, the system was usable. Trinity R14 on both 
systems is almost unusable. Starting Trinity takes a minute or two. 
Opening konsole takes 7-10 seconds. Opening a preloaded konqueror 
takes 20-25 seconds.

I realize free/libre software never truly supported older hardware 
despite claims otherwise and developers instead move relentlessly 
onward with bleeding edge hardware. Still, because of the many 
improvements I would think Trinity R14 would fare better, at least 
as good as 3.5.10.

Any ideas? Any help?
