The OpenNetinf Virtual Machine is a VirtualBox VM running Ubuntu. It already contains everything a future developer needs. Java, Eclipse, Mercurial, Firefox and Thunderbird as well as several other tools are already installed and pre-configured. It is based on an immutable disk image which means that one image can be used to start several Netinf nodes at once.

To use the VM, just download and import it into a running VirtualBox installation (don't use the OSE version). Please feel free to contact us when you run into problems and we would be happy if you would give us some feedback on how you liked the VM.
