Further Information

To access any one of the pre-configured library services you may use logins and passwords given in the Home page. As this is a LiveCD, it would not touch your hard disk. Once you come out of the LiveCD. You can resume your normal operations on your system. However, if you wish install the contents of this CD, you may click the icon "Install Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS)". You only have to be careful with Partitioning the disk, as it allows multi-OS boot"

One disadvantage with any LiveCD is, you can/should NOT install it on an existing server on which you already have lots of data and software configured. In future, '.deb' files may be released to facilitate configuring theses software on Debian Linux compatible operating system like Ubuntu.
