I think something like a 5 year old or 8 year old moving window is
completely reasonable. Xfce works great with my P4-3Ghz which is now
probably 5 years old. Gnome works, but not nearly as well. But I don't
expect XFCE to work well with my Pentium75 from years gone by. Things have
to change. But you can still make sure you cater to old machines and define
what that means based on the current state of the art.
