Re: Ubuntu Upkeeping on old systems?
I would recommend installing either Xubuntu or Lubuntu as said in previous posts.
You can have both of these desktop environments as well as keeping your Ubuntu OS, as these operating systems all share a common core.
To install Xubuntu:
To install Lubuntu:
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop -y
These operating systems have a much less resource demand than Ubuntu such as using less RAM, CPU and GPU processing power.
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop -y
