I have Ubuntu server 8.10 running well inside virtualbox as a 'test' server, it is only under minimal load. I can only, for various reasons, allocate about 300MB RAM to the Ubuntu server. Is there any reason to upgrade or should I leave well alone??

Thanks

It depends on what your virtual server is up for.

I tend to follow the LTS versions for servers, but (as mentioned) "it depends". Are there new features you want to try? Is there something that doesn't work right in current configuration? Is the machine "mission-critical"? (What are consequences if it fails?)
