I am sitting at a 4 year old P2 at 300 MHz laptop running WinXP Pro, with
all the MS Office applications, including Project, and performance is
quite snappy with 256 Meg RAM. I threw WinXP on it after upgrading the
HD to a higher performance drive (large cache, faster speed 40 Gig HD),
and have been quite impressed with the performance of this machine
using current software.

Oh, and Hi Dave! ;^)
