LXer: Linux laptop takes the strain for technophobes

Published at LXer:

A Newcastle-based company has launched a Linux-based laptop and support package designed to encourage technophobes online. Built by the Broadband Computer Company, the Alex laptop runs an operating system based on Ubuntu Linux and a set of applications that have been written in-house. The laptop's features have been vastly simplified, and updates are applied automatically without prompting the user, according to company co-founder Andy Hudson.
