With "faster or less complicated" you end up sacrificing performance. If that's what you want, check out One-Click Install WordPress on Ubuntu 12.10 with DigitalOcean.

If performance matters to you, check out a href="">How To Install Wordpress, Nginx, PHP, and Varnish on Ubuntu 12.04.

Varnish is an HTTP accelerator and a useful tool for speeding up a server, especially during a times when there is high traffic to a site. It works by redirecting visitors to static pages whenever possible and only drawing on the server itself if there is a need for an active process. This tutorial covers installing wordpress on a LEMP stack (with nginx instead of apache), and then installing varnish.
