Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"This remix takes the most common changes we?ve observed among
institutional users and bundles them into one CD which can be
installed directly or used as a basis for further customization.
Before anyone gets all worked up and conspiratorial: everything in
the remix is available from the standard Software Centre. Packages
out, packages in. No secret sauce for customers only; we?re not
creating a RHEL, we already have an enterprise-quality release
cadence called LTS and we like it just the way it is.
This is a convenience for anyone who wants it. Having a common
starting point, or booting straight into a business-oriented image
makes it easier for institutional users to evaluate Ubuntu Desktop
for their specific needs.
