Some feedback....

For the Mac side of things I think we would be better dealing with it
from a direct boot option and then having a separate virtualisation
option as in terms of GUI say VirtualBox is the same across all

Also I'd like to note that its been discussed in the past about doing
images for particular virtualisation platforms and the reason we've
shied away from that is because all virtualisation platforms support
booting of .iso files and its then easy to do an install from there.
By doing this it allows us to ship and QA a single image and support
it on both physical and virtual platforms. If we support VIrtualBox we
should probably also support VMWare, Hyper-V, KVM and Xen. Who's going
to do all that testing when we have barely the resources to do a
single image.
