The current version of the Matriculation Examination Board's exam operating system aims to demonstrate the exam execution environment. The Matriculation Examination Board reserves the right to revise the exam operating system without prior notice. As this is solely a test version, the final product may be different.

The operating system is designed so that it will not make modifications to the workstation. All testing is done at one's own risk.


This product is based on upcoming Debian 8.0 (jessie), and includes software w/ various licenses. For licensing information, see Debian License information . Work done by MEB is licensed under GPLv3, except MEB/Digabi logos (included in some digabi-* packages), and when otherwise noted.
