Definitely!  I have a Latitude Ls system which does 800x600.  Programs
on that system start out being a bit bit and moving down the top or
bottom of the display so the the thing I learned quick was which ones
seemed to be built for larger displays.  One is acrobat reader.  I
quickly learned about how to hit the "okay" button since it was below
the bottom of the screen. 

The other one I use on my Dell is Sawfish (gnomeless).
