Technically, the prototypical system realisation "?-Box Live" tracks Debian
Wheezy. All functionality is reachable through a Fluxbox context menu - in
case you wonder what to do next after the login. The cloud control cockpit is

pressed twice in the browser to reduce the font size. Many such issues clearly
show that it's a side effect of research work without much care about such
software development glitches :)

Then run it through KVM with -m 1024, and use "demo" whenever it asks you for
a username or password. Most of the software has been written by us except
for the last section in the context menu, which contains stock tools such as
file manager, terminal and browser. Only one tool is properly (more or less)
packaged for Debian, all others have merely been thrown all over the directory
structure. They can be turned into proper packages if there is an interest.

I'd be happy to get feedback and ideas for additional functionality.
