Peter, keep in mind that Xubuntu its NOT the linux-team. Non PAE kernel
support its still possible, but Xubuntu will NOT support it, there are
however many other distros who are aimed toward older computers that WILL
NOT drop old computers support. However Xubuntu its not one of those
distros. We focus on giving a modern and stable desktop.
