World's 'simplest' Linux laptop reaches the UK

French firm Ordissimo is bringing “the world’s simplest laptop” to the UK, a small family of Linux-based computers aimed at the population of holdouts who find conventional PCs and the online world that comes with it too complex to bother with.

Back to basics computing the Ordissimo way offers users a simple range of applications that have, the company claims, been hugely simplified to reduce the number of mouse clicks necessary to perform basic tasks.
