I suggest you ...

Allow Custom Images

Allow users to upload ISO's of Linux installations they would like to use. For instance, I was hoping to install Slackware 14; if users could upload their own ISOs you wouldn't have to keep adding distros as they wanted them.

        yes please!!! I need an instance of vicibox which is a custom iso based on suse... please allow the upload of an iso and load from that... thanks!

        +1 for disk images instead of ISOs. Just like AWS AMIs.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        No sense, Vultr has less time in the business and they already allow custom ISO, and they use KVM as well as you... Moving to Vultr

        After 2 yerars there is no progress.

        This suggestion is highly interesting. It might be a way for me to continue using ArchLinux on DO which i've appreciated in the past.
