Canonical please make an Ubuntu virtual machine available

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 19-Oct-2007 10:43

I can't be bothered with Ubuntu anymore. They have just released Ubuntu 7.10 and there I go downloading the CD ISO to try on a virtual machine - again same problem their install doesn't support the virtual machine graphics - all very well explained here on how to install Ubuntu 6.10 on virtual PC... But I just can't be bothered thinkering.

Perhaps they should create a virtual machine image and make it available for download as well?

Since I am not in the mood of hacking things that should be easy for mom and pop to use, and since I don't want to repartition my hard drive to try a software that I may - or may not - like, then I will just forget about this silly thing.

Let the flamewar begin. Or even better you could suggest a distribution that actually runs on a virtual machine from the install?
