The last time I upgraded this machine it failed because I have a non-PAE processor. I was forced to reinstall the last, old version of Xubuntu.
Now I fear I'm stuck with a discontinued distribution.
I don't know whether I can upgrade, whether I should and how I should. E.g. can I happily carry on with this old distribution forever? I need to install Skype. It should be okay, shouldn't it? But for how long? Is this the end of the relationship between me and Ubuntu? Or is there a way I can carry on using it with my old processor?
This is what I've got:
