What I can remember of VMware, once it is set up it doesent need to do anything else it is just a virtual computer running inside a program running in an OS so it uses what is already running.

I used VMware a few years ago and it ran ok just slower than the real thing.

What I would use an emulator for is to run Puppy on any machine while another operating system is in operation without having to install anything and having to reboot.

This is my scenario:

Go to a machine running Winxxx, plug in USB drive containing emulator and Puppy, start Puppy, do some work, stop Puppy, unplug USB, go home, get drunk and not have to worry about host machine as nothing is changed and it has not rebooted.(yet)

That way you don't care about the host machine or its OS as you have not done anything except run a program on it.

I've build an AllInOneQEMU for Linux. You can even run
QEMU-Puppy in QEMU-mode on Puppy-Linux itself! (It might not be
useful, but it is funny...)

I'll probably release it tonight.

Well, it's alive! I've build this AllInOneQEMU for Linux and
released it just a couple of minutes ago.

The download of QEMU-Puppy is now only one big file.
Installation is much easier.

For more information and download:
