Nothing to hide. "gainroot" is file to change, following wiki called "how
to become root" or something similar. Just don't forget to have space before
"#", in line that enables mode. Yes, you have to be "root". From the very
start, I think would be the best to first enable red-pill-mode, then add
repositories, then update them and then install xterm and openssh.

The free space on the gadget is major reason to do things to look like 770.
GUI is "hog". I hear about 1'' hdd. If 770 has that hdd, it could fly debian
like any other box. Memory amount like 800 and all would be happy.
