3 years is "very old"? Come on...
I have 2 laptops, both are non-PAE... Only the newest one with C2D on 
board is.

Only the Pentium M is problem. Sonoma with PAE was introduced in 
early 2005, but older versions were still on market. Dunno how long 
pre-Sonoma processors were produced (suppose ~1 year).
IMO it's much too early to abbandon support for that processors...

If you think of MS-DOS as mono, and Windows as stereo, then Linux is Dolby
Pro-Logic Surround Sound with Bass Boost and all the music is free.
