Get your Juice here

For some odd reason, this link is very hard to find: Download JeOS

From what I can tell, JeOS (Just enough OS) is a stripped down version of Ubuntu which can be of use to ISVs looking to create virtual appliances. It has been optimized for VMware. I have no idea what that means.

I think virtual appliances are a great idea. There is no configuration anyone needs to do to get started and more importantly only one install configuration to support. I do wonder how the underlying OS stays up-to-date. With Ubuntu, its usually apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. I suppose one can schedule that one if all else fails.
