Ubuntu JeOS (Just Enough Operating System)

Back in September, Ubuntu announced a new addition to the family called JeOS (Just Enough Operating System). Ubuntu JeOS (pronounced "Juice", no not the Barry Bonds Juice that can be denied as not knowing) , "is an efficient variant of the popular desktop and server operating system, configured specifically for virtual appliances". The article goes on to state, "JeOS Edition has been tuned to take advantage of key performance technologies of the latest virtualisation products from VMware".

Looks really interesting and actually comes at a good time as I have been playing around a lot with VMware, DSL (Damn Small Linux), and Ubuntu Server.
