VBoot allows native booting from most types of virtual disk image, like windows 7's feature but for more OSes and disk types. all these examples are for virtualising an entire PC, whereas VBoot just allows booting from a virtual disk file on a physical computer.

I also think, this is a not-ready project
On the website of VBoot there was in Sept.2010 the reference:

I have added the VBoot-app in a very early stage.
