Oh, wait, I have a huge sum of money coming my way from the tax return! Maybe I'll purchase it.
Once I get the hang of it, I'll be happy to play you, BFenix.

I also don't like the way the enemy scales each mission based on your fleet size, opening up a cheat where you just scuttle your fleet at the end of a mission, starting the next one off against a weak enemy while you have tons of cash. I miss too the fleet formations from the first game... *sigh*
Cataclysm was pretty fun too.
Even though I own and have played all three games extensively though, I have actually never played online against another real person....
I think the thing that got me back into this game recently was picking up a copy of Sins of a Solar Empire, which is an altogether fantastic game which you should definitely check out if you haven't already. It's more about strategy than tactics, and much different in terms of gameplay than the Homeworld games, but is truly epic in my opinion.
This is a good <a href="http://theinquisitiveloon.blogspot.com/2010/09/strategic-depth-and-sins-of-solar-space.html">review of the game</a>, if you so desire.

Also, as to the technical worries... I figure if I can run Minecraft without too much lag, I can probably run Homeworld without a ton of worries.
