You mention that you have it loaded on an older PC: what sort of minimum requirements (CPU, RAM etc.) would you say are required for a reasonable performance of DreamLinux? The reason I ask is in case friends or colleagues ask me for recommendations for versions of Linux that will work on older PCs and have a nice-looking GUI.
