This Amazon Machine Image (AMI) features the most recent non-LTS (non-Long Term Support) release of Ubuntu Desktop for the x86_64 architecture, specifically Ubuntu 22.10 Kinetic Kudu. It comes equipped with the GNOME desktop environment as the default graphical interface.

VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is pre-installed and set up to initiate upon startup, allowing users to remotely access and control the instance with a graphical interface. Moreover, this image offers comprehensive OpenGL support, including GLX, ensuring the smooth execution of 3D applications.

One of its key advantages is its versatility. You can deploy this image on instances with only CPU resources or those with GPU capabilities. The image is smart enough to automatically configure settings based on the underlying hardware. Instances equipped with NVIDIA GPUs will benefit from official NVIDIA drivers, enabling the full utilization of the GPU’s potential for graphics-intensive tasks.

For those seeking LTS (Long Term Support) releases of Ubuntu, please refer to the Panoptesoft product page on the AWS Marketplace for available listings. This AMI is an ideal choice for users who require Ubuntu Desktop on AWS, whether for general purposes or resource-intensive graphic applications. Keep in mind that specifics, such as AMI availability and configurations, may evolve over time, so it’s advisable to consult the AWS Marketplace or official documentation for the latest information.
