Then – We run down the big distro releases, debate of Ubuntu is the OS X of Linux, answer some of your great question…
AND SO MUCH MORE!

Docker is an open-source engine which automates the deployment of applications as highly portable, self-sufficient containers which are independent of hardware, language, framework, packaging system and hosting provider.
Docker is an open-source implementation of the deployment engine which powers dotCloud, a popular Platform-as-a-Service.
At PyCon Solomon Hykes shows docker to the public for the first time.
You can simply install a vncserver along with firefox 🙂
Share your experiences, thoughts, questions, etc about Linux Containers and we’ll work some of it into tomorrow’s BIG show!
LXC is the userspace control package for Linux Containers, a lightweight virtual system mechanism sometimes described as “chroot on steroids”.
LXC builds up from chroot to implement complete virtual systems, adding resource management and isolation mechanisms to Linux’s existing process management infrastructure.
The LXC package combines these Linux kernel mechanisms to provide a userspace container object, a lightweight virtual system with full resource isolation and resource control for an application or a system.

— /etc: Howto Install Docker —
Brought to you by: Untangle
Ubuntu Raring already comes with the 3.8 kernel, so we don’t need to install it. However, not all systems have AUFS filesystem support enabled, so we need to install it.
Docker is available as a Ubuntu PPA (Personal Package Archive), hosted on launchpad which makes installing Docker on Ubuntu very easy.
Please note this is a community contributed installation path.
Installing on Arch Linux is not officially supported but can be handled via
either of the following AUR packages

- Soundboard Software for Linux? Something with hotkey support, this would be a good example.
