Elementary OS

Click on to enlarge
As Windows gets more complex with every version as a never ending array of features are added, some of us prefer a simpler system. Elementary OS, aptly named, provides only this. There are no menus, just a Panel similar to the Mac at the bottom and an Icon based dropdown Panel, like Android, from the top. A single click on any Icon launches the Application. There is a repository for a few extra Apps and as the system is maintainance free there is little else to learn about it. China has a few outlets to buy it as a complete Laptop but I suspect these are repurposed unsold Windows 10 machines due to the lack of power. Like the Chromebook these devices need only a minimal specification, and will not slow down with time. Any settings change is done from a control Panel similar to Android.
