    Moved to General Help.

    You would be installing something that is well beyond End Of Life, does not get security updates and would not have a repo easily available from which to install software.

    It would be terribly irresponsible for us to even begin to try to help you with this.

    You might be able to do a minimal installation and build from there, but to be honest it is unlikely that Unity would run if this is a low spec machine.

    it's dual core 1.6, 2gb ram and 500hdd i am not sure but i think version is samsung n140 it worked great with linux mint, i just like ubuntu more, i also had problems that i couldnt see head of windows in some programs in mint...
    i decided to switch on some more light os, since a lot of light os looks like win xp, i would like to try to optimize this version
    what kind of security is problem? i am average user which dont know to compile, i would use it for web, office and some movies and music, bluetooth and camera also are must, so i dont worry very much

    Have a look at lubuntu. Lightweight, and up-to-date.

    I used to have a similar specification netbook on which both Xubuntu and Lubuntu ran very well. I tried Ubuntu (12.04 I think). It wasn't too bad but also had some settings dialogs that were too big for the netbook's screen and couldn't be resized.

    I'd definitely go with a lighter flavour. Ubuntu MATE might also be worth looking at.

    I think you have two choices: run Xubuntu 16.04, or buy a more capable laptop.
