Subject Re: DevCloud replacement
Date Sun, 22 Jun 2014 12:40:16 GMT
I went ahead and built two small linux vms for my personal testing:
(both can be downloadable from http://people.apache.org/~bhaisaab/vms)

tinycore.ova is ~9M image based on tinycore Linux 3.x release and requires
at least 50M RAM
tinycore-openbox.ova is ~29M and has openbox window manager

Cheers.
