That is a great idea, in fact I am going to leave it %100 un-patched
and try all of those fun kernel exploits on it as well.

As for it just being old Ubuntu - are the newer EOL versions of Ubuntu
(like 9 or 10) still easy to exploit  (32 bit/no canaries/no NX) that
are easier to get the display drivers to work for?

Shellshock was awesome, but my favorite exploit is the exploit in
fingerd used by the morris worm. So simple - yet so effective. I'm
sure us archers can appreciate that.
