GREAT!!!

One other thing, the Ubuntu Netbook edition was merged into the Desktop edition for Ubuntu 11.10. If you downloaded the 10.10 release, this is several years old and does not have 10 years worth of security patches and application upgrades. The current Desktop edition should have all the support and optimization needed. I would NOT recommend installing it.

Also, I believe the Atom processor on you Dell Mini is a single core 64 bit processor. So theoretically, it can run the 64 bit version. It probably makes little difference, I have read it can be slightly faster, but since most 64 bit processors are multi-core, it may not be as optimized. The fact you are only dealing with 2 GB of installed memory means that you will not come into addressing issues using the 32-bit version.

If it is the Ubuntu 18.10 32 bit version, and it works, don't change anything. You do NOT want to use the legacy Ubuntu 10.10 NetBook version for the reason I stated before, it does not have the security upgrades.

The machine is not going to be a speed demon, but then, neither is a Raspberry Pi, which runs Linux as well (ARM architecture).
