How difficult (if at all possible) would it be run a copy of Amazon Linux on a private physical server or hypervisor (Virtualbox/KVM) ? (I am thinking something based in a office/home) I realise it essentially RHEL/Centos with more up to date repositories and some minor changes but I can't help but feel many people would it find it useful to be able run their own copy for staging/development either in the office server room or on their desktops/laptops. I have done some searches on google but can't seem to find any mention of anyone trying this.
As a follow on, if it is possible can anyone suggest some sane steps to actually doing it? (Alternatively if this actually a really daft question and i haven't fully thought it through feel fee to pillory away) (or better yet, if you can think of an alternative - fire that off too!)
