A Moon is a public terminal computer. It can be used by anyone to work freely. We will provide USB sticks which can be prepared for use on Moons. Without one, no data will be saved.
Moons boot a Arch Linux (i386) from their local hard drive. Swap is encrypted at random on boot. Host names are chosen from Jupiter’s moons, starting with ordinal number 1.
