Planning on buying one of these for my grandparents, however they only ever use Internet, offfice, usb printer and ethernet.

Is there any tiny linuxs which run just this nothing else that has simple interface like icons on the desktop?

Windows man you see!

hi,

since debian and lxde will be available at launch, i think it would be the right choice for grand pa.

Which one would you say provides the most easiest of operating? I just want them to be able to see 3 Icons on the "Desktop" Gmail,Google,Office (may be more than one)
thanks!

Any will do, just tweak the interface. Debian + lxde will do, so will PuppyLinux which seems to te being ported, but might take longer to get there.

Any one will do. Just put the icones you want on the desktop.
