XSCE 5.1 "complete recipe" installation instructions (legacy installs only!)



XSCE 6.0 arose from this /Road_Map.

See our 2014 roots surrounding XSCE 5.1, and our very successful Internet-in-a-Box Summit Oct 10-13, 2015 in Toronto, as well as early roadmapping for the upcoming XSCE 6.1 !

XSCE 6.0's specification arose from proposed features and Caryl Bigenho's Los Angeles OSSIE community going way back to our meetup there Feb 21-23, 2014! Where OSSIE = Open Source Software in Education a.k.a. OLPC-SoCal, who helped nurture http://internet-in-a-box.org to what it's now becoming :-)
