My current interest is for running it on a laptop system; where the
smaller & faster stuff is the better, since generally laptops have a lower
spec. that your average pc. I've just ordered my laptop, and when I get it
I want to be able to configure everything so that the limited space (in
terms of screen real estate) is used to the full - if I want another
feature, I can just get a small program and add it in that way.

I think a lot of people would be interested in small wms for legacy
hardware, but the notebook aspect of things should be remembered too ;)
