Edit: i guess the xda ap does not do qoutes? In any case, the below is in response to whether the webtop is a vm or not...
No, webtop is not a VM but actually running on top of the linux kernel directly. But the entire interface on-phone (ie, the android OS) is a vm, per my understanding. Also, the "mobile view" of the phone when in the lapdock mode is just windowing the VM with a few extra features as far as I can tell.
Interesting side point, I got to watch my phone go through its random reboot the other day while still using* the webtop on the lapdock. Even wireless stayed active as far as I could tell.
*Using is a relative term... the usual slugishness of Firefox ground mostly to a halt while the android UI rebooted. I did successfully switch a tab during the three minute process though.
