I'm fairly new to linux and linux mint. I have a customer who would like a linux environment whereby, as he's elderly and quite scared of clicking the wrong thing - everything bar the desktop is hidden.
Almost like a glorified typewriter, all he wants to do is turn the pc on, automatically go straight to desktop, open writer, type something, print or save and turn it back off again.
How easy is this to achieve?
I'm confused as to what the differences are in desktop environments too!
