Is there as simple shell for Linux?

Hello. A quite old PC for 2000 years. I would like to use it to put Ubuntu Server/Debian. For convenient operation it would be necessary to put some simple shell (multitasking, just screen is not very suitable). For PCs with 128 MB of RAM I think you need something graphical or lightweight Ala Windows 3.11 :) . Searching in Google, nothing found. What you tell?

standard xserver -> not very convenient.
IceWM -> something between proizvoditelnosti and beauty
Enlightenment E17 -Yu my choice

ion3, if the management will understand. If all needed features WM-RH, easier nothing.

Well, Debian will have to put a 6th or something like that (would 5th, but there is really quite old software).

Only one devil you have there browser no will not start. Even midori/qupzilla have a couple of hundred it without tabs.

bash, because the graphics (X) such amount of RAM it will start but will not start.

Windows XP unable to deliver, the most cost-effective resource option soft find may be old, but forget about the browser. Besides, it's not linux.

And the cost of electricity for a few months then this option is obviously more expensive than some of the Raspberry Pi, which will be much more powerful.
