Lua OS 0.13
by Stefan Reich. Released Oct 6 2011. Previous version: 0.12
This release improves many areas of the Linux part of the system. On boot, the system and keyboard language can be chosen (we primarily support English and German right now). Lua OS 0.13 can be installed as a single-user or a multi-user system. Useful software was added and the manual now covers some daily tasks you might have in mind.
As a demo, the 0.10 video is still pretty accurate. Just imagine the bugs being gone :)
We didn't update the in-Windows and in-Ubuntu versions this time, as nothing changed in them.
Lua OS should be bootable on any standard PC. If it isn't, tell us!
- Live-CD image (Lua OS 0.13, 612 MB)

How to install on Windows
How to download and install on UbuntuIn (for example) your home directory, type:
wget http://luaos.net/install-luaos-0.12.sh sh install-luaos-0.12.sh
This will fetch and install Lua OS and give you a convenient desktop icon for starting it.
How to install (any other Unix-ish platform)
At minimum, you need a platform that runs Lua and Java. You could then try getting the cross-platform zip. Run "apt-get openjdk-6-jre lua5.1 liblua5.1-socket2 liblua5.1-json liblua5.1-filesystem0" or whatever process your OS offers to that end. Finally, unpack the archive and run "java -jar lua-os.jar".
