I have to concur, even though it is not nice with my ancient 8 year old 
laptop, though I have not installed KDE 4.7 on it yet. it is much better on my 
2008 laptop. More testing may be needed if there. are enough old-timey 
hardware out there still, but those of us with such systems are usually well 
aware of the limitations.

Turn it on!!
