VMWare-Image (again)

While waiting for the image, I tried this QEmu in the WIKI-Section - I am not sure why, but everything within the neo-Emu seems to be very slow! I have to wait a couple of seconds (~10 with 99% CPU) until anything after a pen-touch happens... :-(
Is this the normal behavior?? I tested it on two different PCs (Both Windows XP, ~2,4GHz P4/AMD)

Is there now any working vmware image with all compilation-relevant files including the emulator downloadable?! Preferable with some demos? I just want to "start and begin coding" without having to set up the whole system... 

There is QEmu images at http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/OpenMoko_under_QEMU . QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer: http://www.qemu.org/ 

The real advantage of QEmu over VMWare is QEmu can be updated to support Neo1973 hardware (another Open Source feature :-). It is a work-in-progress and when it's more mature it is going to be submitted for merging to the main QEMU development tree...
