I remember the good old days when we had to start a new project, and we got the usual constraints: We're using Oracle as backend with 2 Jboss in cluster and Apache on top... set up your test environment, use XX as integration env, start coding.
Jaysus! If only we had got this before i can't even imagine how many time we would have saved if we had built an appliance prototype for every project for the team.
This is outstanding guys, two thumbs up!
I think an interesting appliance might be a development projectware appliance (eg: cvs+bugzilla or horde, etc etc)
Anyway, thanks for this magnificient idea, and i will try to help in this project as much as i can, testing, submitting bugs, trying to build appliances etc etc
Count with me in this one!
