So this got a quick whirl in a VM and checks out Ok-ish in my opinion.


"Global" isn't too reassuring, site gives zero clue as to who or how many are involved

previously AnitaOS - for which information is scarce to rare

So great with the good points, but the project should now prove some longevity - Anita yesterday, Liya today and ___ tomorrow?
Some more info about the team behind the distro would do wonders for trustworthiness about Liya. Are they in Sweden, USA and UK,... or China, Russia and Bangladesh? Team of two, or twenty?
