Distributing virtually boxed applications

.vdi to .deb

The city of Munich has, for their LiMux client, developed a system to distribute virtual box images. The system images are shared by all users, immutable and updateable, and a small persistent virtual disk for the data is generated on the fly.

This BoF introduces this solution to anyone interested and invites you to join a discussion about the pros and cons of this approach.
