I can't wait to have a good excuse to try it.
FWIW, Ubuntu Server versions 6.06, 6.10, and 7.04 all work nicely as
VM OSs. We have a few running happily with as little as 32 megs of
RAM at work.
We haven't had any reason to set up a new VM since this came out though.
I wanted to try this at home, but I wanted to try the latest version
of VMWare server, and I'm having some user privilege annoyances with
this that I don't recall having at work.
