Updated at 7/6/2011 1425: Whatdeyaknow, Ubuntu 11.04 just showed up on Rackspace’s server list.
Ubuntu released 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) back in April.
It’s now July, and 11.04 is still not available as a server image at Rackspace Cloud.
I’ve repeatedly asked Rackspace about 11.04’s availability. I always get the same answer back, which is, paraphrasing: “We need to do something to ensure it’s reliable in a VM environment. Please be patient.”
Fine. But, c’mon, it’s been a quarter of a year now.
Does anyone know if Rackspace dropped Ubuntu as a supported operating system, and hopes nobody will notice?
