The developer also supply the Inetboot and Etherboot/GPXE tools to support loading of network-based boot images.

– it’s a live CD distribution, which means you don’t have to install/reinstall the OS on your hard drive just because you want to try out some virtualization technology
– most of virtualization solutions as part of the distribution – you don’t have to search for their latest versions, you don’t need to compile anything – all the tools are ready for immediate use
