Couldn't deal with images at all. Switching to Linux cured it, you still have to be cognizant of
the 1G memory and cpu power limitations, but it can do much more than before.
Same here. I have several machines that are 10-15 years old, and
severely under-powered. They bogged down terribly with WinXP, but now
run great with Lubuntu (a light-weight version of Ubuntu).
