    No, 12.04 was the last.

    Yes, here's a guide:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PAE
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.

    That's what I was thinking too. I checked and some early versions had 128Mb.

    I run kubuntu (KDE desktop) on a 1Gb netbook. I'd never install ubuntu with the unity desktop on it. I have an i3 based 4Gb netbook and I consider ubuntu (unity) too slow on that.

    If xubuntu and lubuntu have a 32 bit non pae kernel version install I'd definitely install one of them. Probably lubuntu if it's a 512Gb RAM computer.

    Please note: you will have to install version 12.04. According to what I just looked up, both xubuntu and lubuntu have dropped non-pae kernel support in 12.10 and later versions. 12.04 is the long term service version - it's supported until 2017 so that shouldn't be a problem.

    This is from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu ...

    "We have done many tests and we've found out that Lubuntu can be installed on a Pentium II or Celeron system with 128 MB of RAM, but such a system would not perform well enough for daily use.

    With 256MB - 384MB of RAM, the performance will be better and the system will be more usable.


    With 512MB of RAM, you don't need to worry much.


    The default "Desktop" installer requires 384-800 MB of RAM (depending on selected options.) If you have problems, please use the "Alternate" installer."

    Everybody, please post only information that you are absolutely sure about.

    Lubuntu has no long time support and for Xubuntu long time support means three years, that is until april 2015 for 12.04. A spin-off from Lubuntu 12.04 called LXLE is approaching long-time support, but it is not official.

    My recommendation is Lubuntu 13.04 using the workaround I posted above.

    A big part of moderating a technical forum, is to correct a post or thread, when opinions are potentially being posted as fact. It seems a lot of this type of monitoring has been missing in recent times here on the forums, and misinformation has been left to stand as gospel, so to speak. It's refreshing to see posts such as yours here. Good job!

    Thanks, but everyone is free to post and correct mistakes. Sometimes even mods go offline

    That certainly wasn't my experience.

    After I woke up one morning, and found myself indentured to a set of forums, I was doomed to a life of Mountain Dew, Hot Pockets, an ankle tether, and an always on connection. It took me several years to plan and execute my escape...
