Yes, I saw that too (although I didn't look as closely, just looked
for kernel code).
I saw a page for what I can play with soonest, how to quickly install
as a VirtualBox guest. But the page it linked to
did not appear to include a pre-installed VM among the downloads,
although it was implied to be there.
While I assume that means a regular install might work, it would be
much quicker to check things out if the pre-installed VM (with suitable
settings, so one needn't guess) was available. Once again, this suggests
to me a disinterest in anything other than official channels, Fortune 100
clients, etc. Never mind that people working at large clients might want
to familiarize themselves on their own time…
