Yes, I'm sorry for the not well formed sentence.. I wrote it fast..

What I would like to say is that, in the Download section of the website,
are two types of pre-built code for L4Linux (February):
1- L4Linux
2- Two instances of L4Linux with ORe for communication.

My question: I would ask you if the first kernel is with or without ORe..
The doubt become to me because there's also the second option specifically
with ORe.
