http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/releases/maverick/alpha-1/ (Ubuntu Server for UEC and EC2)
See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors for a list of mirrors.
Alpha 1 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider testing. Please refer to http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/maverick/alpha1 for information on changes in Ubuntu.
This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some bugs. For a list of known bugs (that you don’t need to report if you encounter), please
