Is that an issue with desktop systems ? I don't think so, the cheapest current desktop goes around for $ 150,- in thailand being subsidised by their government, all be it kind a light, it still has minimum of 10 GB harddisks with a celeron processor high above 500MHz, so i don't think that that will pose a problem, who uses a 386 desktop these days ? Are they going to run the bleeding edge desktops using the freedesktops specs ? I don't think so...
