    LXC Interest..what version Ubuntu?

    I am interested in learning about LXC.

    My question is which version of Ubuntu would I be better off using?
    Could I use a Desktop version rather than a server version?

    Apparently there is a web app for doing LXC maintenance but server
    versions do not come with a desktop.

    Thanks,

    Ray

    So no one has a comment on what flavor of Ubuntu is the best for running LXC?

    I don't know. LXC is non-trivial compared to other VM techniques (IMHO). The "cool kids" are playing with Docker these days when KVM, Xen aren't desired. If you need production ready containers/jails, I'd lean towards openvz. It has 4+ yrs of history, production use, lots of companies using it.

    If complex firewalls or non-standard networking is needed, I'd avoid jails/containers. These are not fully separate VMs, regardless of what other people say. I've seen some real marketing statements propagated by developers as if it were the truth.

    Lacking all hands-on knowledge about LXC, I'd be inclined to use the most recent LTS release - 14.04. I know that KVM-Spice is vastly improved in that release.

    So ... that isn't the response you wanted.

    BTW, a nice how-to for Docker: http://www.howtoforge.com/manage-lin...cker-on-ubuntu was just published.
