webboot - The LinuxBoot way of multi distro ISO booting


With the growing demand and support for
[LinuxBoot]( in firmware, new approaches to booting operating systems have become possible, based on the Linux [kexec]( mechanism. This talk walks through the process of creating an environment for booting a large set of different ISOs from various distributions, covering different methods tried and ideas that came up, concluding with how [webboot]( eventually offers a decent and easy to use interface that can be deployed on a USB stick, tried out in a VM, or even run straight from a mainboard's firmware.
