I installed it on my laptop (Intel Core Duo, 2GB RAM, 90GB HDD) and its looks like lightning fast. The boot time is phenominal and its very quick in response. I had the CPU meter and its looks pretty cool in consuming resources too.
I installed Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and added Windows 2008 Server VHD on it. I installed WSS 3.0, VS 2008 on it. Everything running simultaneously ... doesnt even shake any thing on my laptop given its very least configuration.
I would do more of research and would add good findings over here.
However, you got to be little searching to see where are my links on tast bar etc. Just keep in mind that there is a 'right click'.
