I've been using Windows for ages on my computer. I would like to upgrade to Ubuntu by replacing my Windows. I'm not sure whether my computer can run 13.10 . My specs are below:

  • System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2
  • Computer: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.53 GHz 2.53 GHz, 1 GB of RAM
  • Display adapter: Intel(R) 82845g/gl/ge/pe/gv graphics controller v.

I have some 3 GB of virtual memory too.

The best way to know is to try it out. It should run Ubuntu though, although there maybe sluggishness. In case it is sluggish you may try out a lightweight system like Lubuntu or Xubuntu.
