Rosegarden works very well on my laptop (1.5GHz Pentium M processor with 
the same effective performance as your 1GHz Pentium, 768MB RAM). Drives 
my Yamaha keyboard through an E-MU Xmidi1x1 port (USB MIDI port adapter).

No 100% CPU usage problems like some other poster on the list mentioned. 
(I couldn't reply to that note because the poster's mail client put his 
reply below something that my mail client considers the start of a sig - 
so replying didn't include his reply in the note!) I seem to recall that 
those problems are actually due to some problem with one of the 
supporting graphics libraries of QT, but I don't know.
