Just installed it.

Its freeware now.

allows me to take my own desktop with me, portable VMs for the win.

its not TRULY a portable VM, it relys on the host machine being an XP machine, and runs 2 processes, but the desktop\machine it runs seems to be totally isolated.

interesting program. anyone else used this? or know of another portable VM?

Qemu doesn't need to be installed, so would probably fit the bill of a "portable" VM app.

It powers the embedded version of Damn Small Linux.

dsl-x.x.x-embedded.zip is the file you'll want.

Qemu runs Windows XP pretty well, and with an nLite'd installation could fit on a USB stick quite easily.

Qemu can run XP, well i never! Ive never looked into it *blush*

quick question.... does Qemu hook the main PCs network connection? So I can use network from within my VM?

Yeah, it behaves just as if it were physically plugged in to your network.
