"Unlike the Windows family of operating systems, an early machine does
not require an early version of Ubuntu. If you are installing Xubuntu on
an old PC or with early hardware, jump straight to the most recent
version. It is not necessary to hunt down an old version of Ubuntu to
use your PC. The newest version is the appropriate one."


There is absolutely no good reason to install Dapper Drake (6.06) except
that it is a Long Term Support version.
And why did Canonical invent LTS? To get inside companies. If you are
not a big corporation with special business needs but just a Joe Sixpack
desktop user at home, I wouldn't bother with LTS. Just take the stable
