The Ubuntu team is happy to announce the first release of Ubuntu JeOS,
Ubuntu JeOS 7.10.  Pronounced "juice", Ubuntu JeOS (Just Enough Operating
System) is an efficient variant of Ubuntu configured specifically for
virtual appliances.

ISVs looking to develop virtual appliances will have a compelling platform
in Ubuntu JeOS, an OS optimised for virtualisation that greatly reduces the
complexity and maintenance overhead normally associated with general purpose
operating systems.  Ubuntu JeOS Edition has been tuned to take advantage of
key performance technologies of the latest virtualisation products from
VMware. This combination of reduced size and optimized performance ensures
that Ubuntu JeOS Edition delivers a highly efficient use of server resources
in large virtual deployments.
