The chroot of the OS is kept natively in git's format and fuse mounted with git-fs. Webconverger fulfills the Web kiosk use case, using Firefox and competes indirectly with Google Chrome OS. Chrome OS also has an autoupdate feature, however not as powerful, unified & transparent as when simply using git. bod"

Comment: Webconverger with Java (Score 1) 387

by DraQ (#38299946) Attached to: Ask Slashdot: Ubuntu Lockdown Options?

Webconverger is a locked down Debian, that only allows access to a Web browser. Conceivably the Java testing app could be deployed through the browser via their Java browser plugin.

By default Webconverger does not ship with Java, though you can order a customised version from http://webconverger.com/buy with it included.
