Building an Ubuntu Server for VMware

Building an Ubuntu Server for VMware

Ubuntu’s server distribution, with its tiny memory footprint, makes a really decent base setup for a VMware server machine. Using X11, you can even run the console on the server and have it remotely displayed to a Mac desktop (since there isn’t a native Mac console available).
