Title Doesn't Match Result

How To Save an Old Laptop By Installing This Free OS started out promising until I read this:
Right now the Pixel OS can’t be installed on your laptop, only run from a USB stick or DVD, though this might change in the future.
Wait. The title says you can install the free OS.
But you can't.
Blech.
I still may look into if it supports ripping CDs to MP3 and, if it does, I suppose running it on the same box that has Ubuntu on it would be an option. I haven't returned to that tower to figure out how to get around being asked for a password I don't remember. I have the instructions printed and sitting on my desk.
