It wouldn't be bigger than life if it were just a few .debs, would it? It's a=
 ~ 8GB ready to use OS image based on Ubuntu. It will boot up read-only from=
 bare metal (at least a few I've tested), as a virtual machine or even from a=
 USB memory stick. It'll ask for your OpenAFS credientials in GUI and you wi=
ll arrive on your  AFS homedir. Well, you can access your Liitin account fro=
m a browser as well, even though it's a native OS.=20

I'm actually currently working on adding a sort of Internet of Things suppor=
t by means of pub-sub messaging. The idea is to be able to add new devices t=
o control from Liitin account or develop new things out of their features.=20=

Sorry, got carried away....
