Portable App version takes almost 3 minutes to load up on a 2GHz laptop,
so it could take 5 or 10 to load on a 400MHz one. USB thumb drive [for
data] is hit or miss. I have one that is used for something else, but
works with the tablet, but my other that uses removable
SD/MiniSD/MicroSD cards does not. Will have to try some other types of
thumb drives later.

Is there anything I can do to reduce some of the system requirements?
I have a P-III tablet, running Win2000/pro, that has less than 256 MB
ram and only 4 GB drive with 2 gig free. I would love to have
LibreOffice on it, but OOo 1.x is on it now and I just installed Word
97 on it for the .doc files. I would rather have LibreOffice on it
instead of OOo 1.x and Word 97, but I will not use it much for office
work, except faxes, since it is the only machine I now have that can
send [print] faxes. Seems like Vista does not have it for the
non-business versions, and I cannot get Ubuntu [9.x or 10.x] to use
any of my fax/modem cards.
I also use 800 by 600 for the tablet, since that is the smallest icon
and system/menu font size I can use on it and its touch pad on screen
IF I could get the fax/modem to work, along with the touch features
needed, I could switch to Linux. I do have to find out if it is
"faster" than Win2000 for this P-III 400MHz tablet.
The software and hardware prerequisites for installing LibreOffice on
a Windows system are as follows:
* Microsoft Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4 or higher), XP, Vista,
or Windows 7;
* Pentium-compatible PC (Pentium III, Athlon or more-recent
* 256 Mb RAM (512 Mb RAM recommended);
* Up to 1.5 Gb available hard disk space;
* 1024x768 resolution (higher resolution recommended), with at
least 256 colors.
How about the PortableApps version that installs on a USB key or
external hard drive without touching your hard disk? See
The big reason I want this system working is using it as an e-reader, a
fax "sender", and a few other things that a tablet can do that my
desktop and larger laptop cannot anymore.
Also, when did this type of software need 1 gig of hard drive space?
