Installed it this evening from the Live CD on an oldish Athlon XP 1900 
with 256MB memory.  Installation was very slow (I expected that, I am 
upgrading the memory just haven't got any to hand right now).  Once it 
installed it boots fine and seems fairly responsive on the desktop.

Couple of niggly problems though.  When booting from the Live CD in 
either normal mode or choosing the OEM mode it won't display properly on 
  this particular machine (it's got an ATI Video card, I think it's a 
Radeon 9200SE) and it seems to go into 640x400 (it has a big black 
border on the bottom of the screen!).  Safe mode video option works fine 

Splash screen doesn't work when booting up.  I have seen this before, I 
think in Feisty, can't remember what I did to fix it.

I'm going to give it a go on my main desktop tomorrow.  So far I am 
quite impressed, hope the problems I have experienced aren't the norm.
