The best way to find out if there will be any issues is to use the Try Ubuntu without changing anything option after booting from a Live USB/DVD.

2GB RAM should be OK for Ubuntu. If not, try Lubuntu, which needs less.

The new version of Ubuntu (13.04) will come out tomorrow. It is supposed to be slightly less resource hungry than the previous version. You may want to try that.

Hope this helps
