While writing my piece on DAAS, two years ago, where I came to the conclusion that Azure was a better host, I also looked at Ubuntu on Amazon. Here are my notes which consist mainly of videos.

The first is certainly titled as if it’s what’s needed, “How to install graphical Desktop in ec2 instance ubuntu14.04 (Linux) and access from windows pc”. This is visual and has a shit musical sound track.

and this, which is 20 minutes long, and talks a lot about Amazon …

and finally, this, which is about adding the desktop stack as Ubuntu on AWS comes in server mode with only the CLI


While looking for a featured image, I found this article,12 steps to setup ubuntu server on Amazon EC2, by habilelabs.io which is just a series of text bullets, although it only builds a command line server accessed via ssh.
