I only suggest using the "classic gnome" UI because I know it's supported by Edubuntu until April 2017 whereas Xubuntu 12.04 chose only a 3 year support cycle, and Lubuntu chose only an 18 month support cycle
New: Instructions how to make install USB drive from Windows with graphical user interface tools
Edit: Now the current detailed instructions also reside at the Ubuntu wiki and are easily available from the page above.

There is a new alternative to install Ubuntu based operating systems into computers of various age and kind, also Celeron M and Pentium M computers, the One Button Installer, the 'OBI'.
The OBI is designed to be easy to use and have a very small foot-print. It uses only standard programs and shell-scripts in text mode. Installed systems with non-PAE kernels or fake-PAE are portable between many computers, and they are stored in compressed tar archive files, tarballs.
The OBI helps you make such a tarball of your own system and use it as a backup or to port the system to another computer.Code:GnomeClassic1204-oem.tar.gz GnomeClassic1204.tar.gz lubuntu-10.04.tar.gz # good for old systems but past end of life of desktop packages Lubuntu_13.04sept1.tar.gz lxle-2013-08-19.tar.gz OneButtonInstaller_blank-noswap.tar.gz saucyalfa2.tar.gz saucybeta1.tar.gz # new ubuntu-10.04.tar.gz # good for old systems but past end of life of desktop packages
I'm using a less-discussed install on a Thinkpad R31 Celeron -- Snow Linux 4.0 XFCE. XFCE worked but it wasn't snappy. I discovered I also had Gnome classic as an option. That works pretty well. The Intel graphics chip - 82801?? - seems like a real problem child. I tried their E17 live CD but couldn't get it to load into a live session. This is using a modern kernel, 3.5.x or 3.8.x and is supported until I think 2016.

Sometimes it helps to change the Xorg acceleration method to UXA. See this excerpt from a conversation in the Lubuntu community mail.

There was this helpful bug report on file at http://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+so...x/+bug/1178982.
It described behavior on Dell PC's with integrated Intel graphics, in which Adobe Flash Player would display only with shades of purple and green in a horizontally compressed window (or at least that's how I would describe what I see on a Dell Dimension 2400).
The work-around (Comment #1) was to change the Xorg acceleration method to UXA.
User reported a work-around:
Edit (or create) /etc/X11/xorg.conf as follows: (ugh, can't format, should be a tab before each line except the first and the last).
Restart X (reboot, restart your display manager, whatever). Colors are back to the way they used to be and flash works.Code:Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" EndSection
I forgot to include, however, that the bug workaround messes up the login screen (LightDM). You can make out an entry box that one assumes is for the password entry, but everything else is largely unidentifiable.
So as a workaround it leaves a lot to be desired, unless we can also figure out how to fix the login screen.

There is no issue with the login screen.
