Kernel version, threads sub-library in glibc, lots of minor changes.

Recent revisions of Owl 3 have a file called /etc/owl-release (with some

Whether you pick Owl 2 or Owl 3, you would still be quite far from what
WE is using, since there's no web hosting software in Owl itself - it's
just the base system.  WebEnabled has much extra software on top of Owl.

Curious.  If/when you update this for Owl 3, I suggest that you use
"settle -d" (dumb terminal mode).
