LXer: Putting your Ubuntu desktop in the cloud

Published at LXer:

Canonical have an interesting trial service available where you can get a version of Ubuntu 10.10 up and running withing the Amazon EC2 environment to play with for an hour or so. Obviously it's not enough time to do anything serious, but I thought I would try it out to see if I could actually get a fully functional cloud based desktop. Even with an hour it is possible to see just how well a remote desktop can be when hosted on the Amazon infrastructure.
