 We should update our VM Quickstart, which is currently too verbose, and
 could be made easier to follow.

 Current docs are here:




 What I suggest is:
 1. Try to ensure that the doc is concise, so there is less to translate.
 (The current VM that I wrote is too long).

 2. Describe how to set up a VM for only one VM. Our quickstarts should be
 quick, (and easy to maintain), and shouldn't confuse users by asking them
 to decide on which VM to use.

 3. I'm open to suggestions re which VM you think you should write to. I'd
 guess you would select the easiest, or most widely used Open Source VM,
 but this will probably be your call.

 4. Finish with a link to an OSGeo-Live-VM wiki page. The wiki page can
 include much more detail, including how to install multiple versions of
