It's back online. This always happens after a major publicity exercise online, like a big facebook push or a twitter blitz or an article in old-school media (Forbes here). Has occurred often over the past 2 years

Who knows what motivated these 2 guys to display above 200+ Linux distros in a VPS/VNC/RDP environment for you to play with for about 2 hours to heart's content.

Maybe just a labour of love, yes there are much adds but doubt that it can be funded in that way alone. You can also just fire up (say) Remmina yourself (by taking a browser VNC client) and snatch the ports and addr stuff.
Quite a nice way to explore and discover latest AntiX or MX or whatever other Distro catches your fancy. A worthy initiative in many ways, to be monetized or not down the line

Yeah, I've tried it. Once you wait in line for a while I found it incredibly slow to use. Nice idea, though.
