Grow Your Own Cloud Servers With Ubuntu

| You can install the default Ubuntu OS 
| images or create your own to be virtualized. 
| The node controllers are where you can run the virtual 
| machine (VM) instances of the images.


Ubuntu 9.10 at 120Mhz, 80Mb

| Ordinarily Ubuntu and Debian wonât even 
| install on 16Mb of memory â the installer 
| program (yes, even the floppy-based 
| installer program) crashes and burns 
| without 32Mb of memory. In fact, neither OS 
| will even boot without 20-30Mb of memory, 
| regardless of how you get the system on 
| there. (Itâs always possible that different 
| architectures have different memory 
| demands; perhaps a different machine could 
| boot on less.)


Back from Debian: Meeting up with old Ubuntu.

| What is weird is that, I canât decide 
| whether I want to use Debian or Ubuntu. 
| Debian Squeeze is pretty awesome because 
| the modifications are minimal, and itâs 
| always updating but after a while I did get 
| some major updates and it became really 
| slow all of a sudden, and I wasnât really 
| into it anymore. So I reinstalled Ubuntu 
| Jaunty Jackalope, and itâs surprisingly the 
| same slowness as an aging Debian Squeeze 
| installation. I think these installations 
| get slow because of the dependencies being 
| install from the beginning of use. But, 
| itâs hard to tell. It could also be due to 
| upgraded packages which have different 
| configurations. Iâm not entirely sure.

Ubuntu primes music service

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Linux will likely include an iTunes-
| like music service in its next release.
| Although it is not yet official, Ubuntu's next
| release looks likely to include a music store
| service similar to Apple's iTunes.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
