about VMLite VBoot Dec 2012

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:
"More information will be available at release time."
Because no other software can achieve, what VBoot will achieve, when it will be released,
I have added the VBoot-app in a very early stage.
