Ubuntu tries to squeeze out a virtual appliance edge with JeOS

Author: JT Smith

Canonical Ltd. is set to release a stripped-down version of Ubuntu in late October for use in virtual appliances.

Called JeOS (pronounced "juice"), the acronym stands for Just Enough Operating System, as Canonical has ripped out several software packages to streamline the OS for virtualization purposes. The subtractions include the open source database MySQL; the Common Unix Printing Layer, or CUPS; email, as well as LDAP functionality.
