I had it installed on my PC for about a week, and even with my 2GB ram and 3000+ AMD processor, it would not handle it as nicely as it should have.

this computer does, thats for sure.

Yeah, that'* what I was thinking... I was going to download a copy and just try it out, but from what I've heard, it'* TOO user friendly, and it really gets in the way sometimes when you try to do something simple, like changing your network settings
