    Default BT3 Version Differences

    Before anyone flames me, I googled this and didn't get any real results.

    Whats the difference between BT3's usb, cd and vmware download versions?
    Are there different applications between the versions? Or is it just different installation methods?

    The CD version is optimized to fit onto a single CD, whereas the USB version is extended and for example includes Compiz Fusion as well as all programs on the CD version. The VMware version is a pre-made vmware image that can be used to run BT3 in a virtual fashion for example within Windows.

    But can I run the VMware version within the cd version or usb version?
