I was unable to attend a WebEx Meeting for a LGO (Large Government Organization) recently. Tech support at WebEx tells me the problem is with my operating sytem (see MORE BACKGROUND INFO below). I was using, Lubuntu 13.10. WebEx tech support said that there is no official LGO/WebEx support for Ubuntu past 10 or 11. So it looks like to be sure I can attend a future meeting I have to install Ubuntu 10x or 11x (Gnome) or some other OS like Fedora 15 or 16 32-bit or Windows XP SP3.
QUESTION(S): Is it possible to download and install these older versions of Ubuntu (or Linux)? Any recommendation for which one would be the best? I just want to be able to attend WebEx meetings with this LGO.
MORE BACKGROUND INFO:
WebEx tech support sent me the following link:
