My advice is to install Ubuntu Tweak to remove old kernels if you are unhappy or unwilling to remove them via the Terminal.

1 - Ubuntu Tweak Download

Once you have installed Ubuntu Tweak, open the application up.

2 - Click on Start Janitor

Select Old Kernel & then click Clean

Enter your password when asked, press enter and now only the old Linux Kernels will be removed.
