“Ubuntu sponsor Canonical announced a version of its Linux software stripped down for use just on virtualized environments. The version, called Jeos for ‘Just Enough Operating System’ and pronounced ‘juice’, is now available.” That’s what ZDnet and News.com report, but Jeos is nowhere to be found on the Ubuntu website. El Reg claims: “Canonical is still in the midst of deciding whether not to make JeOS wildly available, since it’s mostly meant as an ISV thing.”

This sounds like a really promising project. Having shelled out the $3700 for ESX Server ourselves, it’d be interesting to see how this performs in comparison for lighter duty servers.
