Ubuntu linux on older computers (which desktop environments to install)

Ubuntu has gone to the "unity" desktop which is the 2000 tonne gorilla of lightweight computing. This shows the basics for downloading a lightweight desktop and where to enable it on a login screen. This allows you to continue using an older computer with ubuntu. Something that is not possible with the UNITY desktop. Beware of upgrade prompts from Ubuntu. It is not an upgrade if it makes your old computer unusable! If you do "upgrade", be sure you increase your ram to at least 1000 megs.
