It's really cool tech, nice tech demo for VNC. But you don't get to instantly boot a distro, you get put in a queue and after it becomes your turn it can take a couple minutes to really boot into anything useful.

And yeah... its 800 times a slightly different flavor of the very same operating system :) Just pick the one with the more favorable patch policy.

Iwould think that this is really a good case for using a VM for testing to see what fits your needs.

Yes, that's what anyone with a brain would do. I think the site is impressive, but basically useless.

It is more showcase and an option to try something before installing it on VM. Don't forget, some people can't invest time to figure out how to use VM, yet to install one. Also VM do require resources (from space, CPU to memory) and not everyone has VM server at home like some of us here or powerful enough computer to run one @ decent speed.

Apart from VM, I always have at least one laptop running Ubuntu, usually on latest LTS.

@ Work we have now 3 Ubuntu servers for different purpose (all running on VMWare vSphere) - it was easy pitch to use Ubuntu, after I gave them quote to get Windows licenses for those servers. :D (we have 4 more unix system running erp software, phone/vm and netscaler.)

That’s brilliant, I have quite a few things to test with that!
