Rolling your own appliance is easier with SuSE Studio...

Click here to read an EWeek story about how SuSE Studio makes it easy to build your own software appliance. The Suse team is working to give people both new and old to Linux the ability to build, test and then download their own custom built SuSe Server.  Once created you are given the choice of creating a Live CD/DVD, Hard Disk/USB Disk Image, Xen or Vmware Virtual machine.  The tool looks awesome and we can't wait to test it out.
