In this blog I will review another option with the latest Ubuntu 20.04 using multipass with microck8s.
Multipass is a simple provisioning tool from Canonical.
highlights of multipass are :

- Leverage cloud init mechnism to set up the vm during startup, as standard cloud instances.
- Provides similar capabilities as WSL2 on Windows
I will demonstrate a quick Jenkins installation. Disclaimer: the commands I am using are for demo only.
