Just finish up the story. I have now accessed & backed up my home files :).  I'm opting for Ubuntu 18.04. This is based almost entirely on the support/popularity as many a time while seeking solutions or instructions for LinuxLite the info I've come across relates to Ubuntu distros. Working from the live USB it also seems quite usable for me. Thanks yo all for your suggestions.

P.S. last question on this. Would it be easy to switch between the default desktop & 'classic view', so that I could try each out ?

Re "Classic view":  yes, very easy.  Let us know when you have installed Ubuntu and feel ready to try it.

Not doing badly with the default desktop, but would still like to have a look at "classic view". So how do I swap ? TIA.

I suggest that you start another topic under Ubuntu - "Changing from Unity Desktop to Classic View" - and we'll do it there.
