One of the things I like having is a remote system I can access and work on from anywhere. In the past this has meant using either a dedicated server (expensive) or VPS (which is just a VM… too slow).

However none of the container templates that I could find came with a desktop or VNC out of the box. After much tinkering with different options, I think I finally have found the best solution for getting a running headless VNC server in a Linux container. (more…)
