While I don't know much about the Dell 8100 (I have a Dell 4100 that I'm
running Linux on), I did have Windows XP Pro on a Compaq Deskpro that had a
600MHz Pentium 3. It ran XP just fine, I saw no real problems with it.
Granted it wasn't the fastest kid on the block and I never tried to use it
for gaming. It did have 512MB RAM on it, perhaps that's Jan's biggest
problem with XP and her Dell, not enough RAM. Btw, I have a friend with an
older Dell 2350 (came with XP, 1.8 GHz Pentium 4 and 256MB RAM). He
remarked to me one day that it had gotten slower and slower and he could
barely use it. He was able to upgrade the RAM to 1GB for a small cost and
now he says he no longer needs a new computer. His Dell just flies and
does everything he needs it to do.
