IMHO this description lacks info what virtualisation technic is used as well 
what exactly will it be running. Is that system just started or some test run 
or or or?

this doesnt belong in the description.

Sorry, testdrive is a VM manager. It automatically set's up KVM, Vbox,
and when it worked, parallels.

ah! That makes it a lot clearer, thanks.

Just one question: why is it called "an ISO testing tool"? The above reads as 
its a tool for downloading ISOs and burning them to USB flash drives and then 
_a person_ can use it to do tests. Is that correct or is the tool itself 
testing something?


cheers,
	Holger

It manages the downloading/syncing and then creating a VM or making a
live USB. so iso testing tool applies IMO
