It seems that UShareSoft UForge is the new rPath! UForge is an Adobe AIR app that lets you create CentOS or Ubuntu software appliances and VMs (with packages of your choice such as alfresco cms and apache httpd) for use on your own (cloud.com, Cloud Stack, Eucalyptus, VMware, Xen) clouds !
the root password for a centos vmware rpath openstack software appliance is either “”, “password” or what you specified if you installed it from the iso !

BitNami now provide both VMs based on both OpenSuse and Ubuntu so you now choose between BitNami and JumpBox for your pre-built Ubuntu software appliances and VMs !

TurnKey Linux virtual appliances are built almost entirely from unmodified Ubuntu binaries, it is possible for anyone to verify the integrity of the binaries that make up a virtual appliance against the original package signatures from the official Ubuntu repositories. There are minor exceptions. When required, a virtual appliance may contain a few custom packages which are updated from our cryptographically signed package repository. Full source code for all custom components is available in our code repository. Some components are also hosted on github.
An Amazon EC2 JumpBox for everyone for an hour !
The JumpBox Open Collection currently has free VMs of Joomla and Movable Type and many more under subscription
