OS.js on X11

Install OS.js as a Linux Distribution

Disclaimer This is experimental, and is not intended for usage when developing/testing OS.js. If that is what you're looking for, do a "normal" installation.

THIS HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE NOVEMBER 2016 UPDATE -- STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES

Building your own

OS.js can run as a X11 Desktop.

This was tested using ubuntu-14.04.3-server-amd64.iso
