We created NayuOS for multiple reasons. We use Chromebooks, because they are great for developing web applications, but are afraid of standard ChromeOS capturing too much data (some passwords, history of browsing).

Another reason is that it is very difficult to use ChromeOS is China. It is the same for ChromiumOS. Chinese internet is not very reliable (see http://www.nexedi.com/NXD-Internet.China). We needed reliable network. So we embedded in NayuOS a technology called Grandenet (http://www.grandenet.cn/) that provides IPv6 wherever we are.

This way, we can reliably connect to our company servers when we travel.

Also, we thought that it would be useful to have a local git command line, because we could not find any good web equivalents for this particular tool (Gitlab or Github are nice for reviewing code, but command line is required for rebasing and cleaning up the repository).

Then, we also included Flask on NayuOS in order to run a simple and configurable DAV server (the WebDAV server is not included yet, but git clone-able), which is useful when doing JavaScript development.
