Trying to expand the question here - are there any other items that won't work on the original Pi B with 256MB of memory?

In fact, it may already have happened that the original 256MB Pi B is not well supported by the current version of Raspbian.
Was he serious? There were many bits of humor/sarcasm/offtopic-ness/poking the bear happening in that thread so I'm not sure.
And, just to be clear, I'm NOT mad about this, even if the SD Card Test or any other software is now not working on the original Model B with its tiny memory. This would be the first instance I've noticed, and it's now 8 years since it came out, a lifetime in computer years. As I've said elsewhere on this forum, I applaud the efforts of Simon and so many others to make the software work on the wide range of pi hardware, and on ALL the Pi models back through time. I'm still running an internal web site on that original Model B - with real apache. (In a different case, I'm now running the Raspberry Pi Desktop on a Chromebook that Google's stopped supporting, and on an old Macbook that Apple's stopped supporting. I'm a big fan of the Foundation there too.)
So I'm just interested, and wonder what others may have noticed.
