Perhaps you could set up a desktop like that with a Windows Vista machine; God knows I have tried, and failed, with a Mac, where I can't get down below three icons, since the same program can't be used to write email and letters. And by the time you have customised such a machine to its very simplest, you might just as well have installed Xubuntu and have done with it.
Nothing that comes ready to use is ready for the sort of users who don't want a computer at all.
In any case, none of the possible solutions for a modern machine would work in 64MB of memory.
It's a delicious paradox that Linux, which was for years the system for people who really enjoyed fiddling with their computers, should have developed to the point where it's the best system for people who hate the bloody things.
