Q: What actually is KREBS?

A: We do not know yet exactly, early versions were just a physical platform for our needs, now it becomes more and more an Operating System for deploying, standardized Functionality on all kinds of (virtualized)hardware. The process is called „Verkrebsung“.

Q: So, i installed KREBS on my Hardware, what now?

A: The next step is applying all possible kinds of extensions to leverage the functionality of the machine and make it do something useful.

Q: What is the Ministry of Cancer?

A: The Ministry of Cancer is the entity which governs KREBS and related projects.
