We shall call him Mini-U – Ubuntu reveals tiny cloudy server

Waseem Alkurdi


Like Windows NanoServer and ServerCore, this distro is not intended to be a sysadmin’s or developers daily desktop.

Why should it be?

Why is something this wonderful "not intended to be comfortable to use at the command line” ?

Imagine ... a desktop with an OS image this light!

Why didn't anybody do it before? A super-light desktop that includes proper coreutils (not shitty BusyBox)!

The problem if we use this one is the KVM-optimized kernel. Simply ripping it out might not work.
