From the site:

GISVM is intended to be a full-feature GIS Workstation based exclusively on free GIS software.

It also aims to be a hassle-free installation option for anyone that needs a ready to use GIS solution.

Based on the amazing VMWare technology it can be used on almost any operating system environment.

I'm downloading it now.....

Hmmm... sounds interesting. Is there a list of applications included in the VM?

The website is certainly not very encouraging.

I would find it difficult to trust this system, especially in it's pre-release beta phase.

I would be interested in seeing some industry testing done on it.

This looks to be a very cool conceptual framework. It will be very interesting to see it mature. I'd like to see the user forum in a few months...
