    Oldest Machine Running Ubuntu 23.10

    What's your oldest machine running the latest Ubuntu 23.10? Memory wise, this new version is just as light as Linux Mint Cinnamon... wow!

    Re: Oldest Machine Running Ubuntu 23.10

    Whilst I don't actually use it for my own stuff (except during QA where I may use it for an hour or two at a time), the oldest machine I use in QA is from 2005

    Code:
    hp dc7700 (c2d-e6230, 8gb, amd/ati rv610/radeon hd2400 pro/xt)
    Until has year it had a less RAM (RAM size has varied over the years; finally last year it was topped out) and a different (nvidia) video card (GPU has changed a number of times), and the CPU was upgraded long ago (from pentium D if I recall correctly, to what's in it now), but it has run all supported releases of Ubuntu (and especially the lighter Lubuntu & Xubuntu flavors).

    ( my primary box runs noble/jammy in dual boot, my backup box runs mantic/jammy, but both are more modern than my oldest machine I'm mentioning here. The hp dc7700 is mostly having 22.04.4 installed on it currently; or Ubuntu noble/24.04 in its primary role which is for QA install testing)

    My oldest is now 12+ years; a HP Elitebook 8460p; i5-2520M; 8GB DDR3; 2TB HDD. I use it mainly as backup server running OpenZFS 2.2.0.
