The differences between the ubuntu variants can be a bit confusing if you're not familiar at all with linux. Basically they have the same core, but use a different desktop system. This is because linux isn't tied to a single desktop like windows. Other than personal preference the most significant thing for you would probably be that XFCE (Xubuntu) is a little bit lighter on required resources. With that little RAM even XFCE might be a bit slow. There's other even lighter window managers, but you'll need to install them on your own, which isn't too difficult in ubuntu. FLuxbox is a good one that I used for a while. There's even a ubunutu varient that uses it, though it's not an official variant.

If you can't answer mt questions don't reply. Your only advise has been reading the documents. And that isn't even advise because I could've figured out that I have to read all these documents. I don't have the time to do so. Just because you're some computer expert and doesn't want to help others doesn't mean every other person in this forum is, I'll get the help off other people.
