Canonical and VMware team on mini-Ubuntu
Canonical has busted out yet another version of Ubuntu – this time taking aim at the much hyped and loved virtualization market.
In the coming weeks, ISVs and OEMs will gain access to Ubuntu JeOS – pronounced Juice. The acronym stands for Just Enough Operating System, since the Ubuntu folks have ripped out a variety of general purpose software packages that don't really play into the virtualization game. As a result, you end up with a server OS that's 215MB in size – plus 65MB from VMware, as compared to a standard version of Ubuntu at 320 to 686ish MB in size, depending on what packages you select.
