IOS file description question

In downloading an IOS version for my catalyst 6509, I see a file description of "DESKTOP W/VIP".

What is meant by the desktop descriptor ?

Meaning it supports desktop protocols such as IP/IPX and appletalk routing

VIP meaning it can support a flexwan module if you have one in the chassis.
