This question already has an answer here:
I am currently using Windows XP Professional, Version 5.1.2600 Service pack 3 build 2600. It is a Dell Dimension 9200. It has an Intel Core 2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz with 2GB of RAM. I have slightly over 95GB space on the hard drive. Will Ubuntu work or would I have better luck using lubuntu?
Edit: Specifically, I am wondering if the Intel Core 2 CPU is going to work because the recommended requirements say a dual core processor. Is this a dual core? Do I just need to reach the minimum requirements for Ubuntu to work properly?
