Does anyone know where you can get an Ubuntu 11.0 VM already created? I am trying to test Ubuntu in Virtual Box and didn't want to have to go through an install it there is Vm's already created.

It is possible to download a preconfigured virtual machine for Virtual Box e.g. from
At present a compressed image for Ubuntu 11.10 x86 is 608 MB, slightly less than a real installation CD.
However as was already said in comments I personally do not recommed to do so for several good reasons:
Installing Ubuntu is an extremely easy task that will take you less than 20 minutes. This is also true when installing in a virtual machine. Therefore there is no good reason (not even being lazy) to not install Ubuntu directly.
For testing you could even boot your virtual machine to an Ubuntu live environment from the installation CD .iso without installation in a minute (but then you will not have benefits from Guest Additions)
In summary: you do not need a preconfigured virtual machine for testing Ubuntu.
Bitnami.org has preconfigured Ubuntu LAMP Stacks (http://bitnami.com/stack/lamp/virtual-machine). However, these come configured with several extra apps and in a slightly odd configuration. I use them for testing apps and playing with different concepts. But for production environments I typically start from scratch with the latest Ubuntu LTS iso.
