Allthough Ubuntu should be as resource friendly as possible I think it
should be aimed at "current" PCs, there are other distributions with old
PCs in mind. Anyway, with the current model old PCs loose support after
18 month if you don't upgrade to a newer release. Nevertheless I agree
that old PCs shouldn't be discriminated, but I don't see why they
couldn't run in the "no-releases" model. Applications are polished on
every release, being less resource intensive. That's good for old PCs.

This is one of the trickiest part. With this approach we need to be very
careful when new versions are released, so breakages are minimized.
Anyway, people might have access to older versions of the software as
you could have now in the repositories within a Ubuntu version.
