DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.
The day is still long.
New build script looks much better.
I am going to go for the live image setup, where the OS runs "live" from a live CD or an existing disk then you can install it from there, though one could copy the live data to a disk and then just clear out live mode. A system property could determine whether the installer should be run or cleared away.
