    HI and welcome, the easiest way to tell if you system is compatible is use the live cd and see what works and what does not.

    It should work fine with those specs, I mean it runs (with full desktop effects) on my home desktop which is a 1300mhz machine with old ddr ram.

    check your hardware (chipset) and google it to see if others had any problems (sometimes sound / wifi don't work out of the box).
    Gnu is not a question.

    Is this UBUNTU is easy to use for aged people or citizens, means they are sometimes alone in home, so they can easily accessible this like windows or redhat linux

    After a quick search, your wireless USB dongle will work out the box but your graphics card might be a pain in the **** to get working, so dont count on desktop effect without putting lots of hours work into it.
