Actually, can we get rid of it entirely?

On the old site we worked to remove references to Xubuntu being
optimized to run on older hardware because there are concerns about
how well it actually does out of the box - too many reviews were being
written with "this is supposed to be light-weight, and it's not"
slants that weren't painting the distro in a great light. I think it
would be good to focus on how great of a multi-purpose distro it is in
general rather than mentioning older hardware and possibly setting
folks up for disappointment, particularly if their definition of
"older" differs from ours.
