Description
===========
This is a VMware virtual machine built by Happy Penguin
Taiwan (http://happypenguin.tw/) for people interested in
Ubuntu 10.10.

Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely
available with both community and professional support.
The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the
Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of
charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their
local language and despite any disabilities, and that people
should have the freedom to customise and alter their software
in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African
word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution
brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.

Host OS System Requirements
===========================
* Standard x86-compatible or x86-64-compatible PC
* Processor speed 2.0 GHz or faster
* Memory 1 GB minimum (2 GB recommended).
You must have enough memory to run the host operating system,
the virtual machine, and applications on the host and guest
operating systems.
* Linux, Windows or Mac OS X as host operating systems

Compatible Products
===================
VMware Player 2.5 or later
VMware ACE 2.5 or later
VMware ESX Server 4.0 or later
VMware Fusion 2.0 or later
VMware Server 2.0 or later
VMware Workstation 6.5 or later

HOWTO
=====
Just download the virtual machine archive, unpack it, open with
the free VMware player (http://www.vmware.com/products/player/)
and start running!

Virtual Machine Details
=======================
Processors: 2 CPUs (can add more later)
Memory: 768 MB (can be modified later)
Hardisk: 8.0 GB, dynamic (can add additional hardisks)
Ethernet: NAT (can be changed later)
VMware Tools: Installed

We recompile Linux kernel for optimization,
make it more compact and virtual machine friendly.

It should run faster and need less resources than
those only installed with default options.
