With the current build system it actually takes almost no work to
produce the virtual machine for distribution (In fact this step comes
before the ISO creation). For those wanting a persistent install this is
the best way currently until the "installation" quirks from the live
disc are worked out.

As for the ISO, if we get the full image small enough for USB then a
single image would be fine. There are currently 2 because we dropped the
win/mac installers from the usb version to make it meet the space

I have no issue emphasizing the ISO first- "big download button", but
having the optional VM around is good since we have it anyways.

This is always up for change as we work out new build processes and with
each revision of the disc.
