Amazon Tries Hand at Virtual Appliances:  "Amazon Machine Images or AMI [is] a packaged environment that includes all the necessary bits to set up and boot Amazon EC2 instances.  The company launched their Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) - Amazon's hosted, on demand virtual datacenter based on the Xen technology - with hopes of creating demand for a pay-per-use model of virtual machines. .. Amazon is now asking its EC2 community members to share their AMIs with other Amazon Web Services developers."  Amazon keeps a listing of public AMI's with RSS feed.  There's even a Windows AMI running under QEMU under Xen (whew!).  XML manifests are required for each AMI.
