Maybe because it is obsolete, unsupported, and based on Ubuntu?

Unlikely. https://lists.launchpad.net/lubuntu-.../msg02659.html

Lubuntu 10.04 seems to be a good fit with this machine. The kernel is compiled to suit an i586 CPU without the cmov instruction and the total install size is 1-2GB which can be accommodated on the hard disk. http://www.osnews.com/story/24476/
