You can download old Ubuntu ISO’s from here.

Then install in a virtual machine on your laptop.

Don’t think DO does anything to the base images.

I use Vagrant for WordPress development. Not sure if internet access is required or not. Hard to get working and you need a computer with some RAM, but debugging is awesome this way.

Hope it helps. :)
