What it is and what it is not :

Green Spider is the release name of Free-Solutions OS. It is pure GPL/GNU Linux based on Debian- Ubuntu/Kubuntu. Works in most PC & Mac Hardware

So usual GPL licence and restrictions applies for the key and its entire content.

Green  Spider is not a Brand, just a release name that associate an animal  with a color. Green Spider make sense as this first key enable great

recycling for Old Hardwares, so a green way to surf the web.

It is a full OS running into a USB Key. In other words your entire PC is within the Key and can run on any hardware. Free-Solutions is selling and delivering the pre-configured and ready to use USB-KEY


NEVER  - NEVER Unplug the key while running. Ensure PC is powered down before  retrieving your key even if you do a force shutdown.

If you have any problem, do a hard reboot before removing the key
