Yup Bazza, ICL had VME [Virtual Machine Environment] decades before VMware re-invented virtualisation

Ultimately we have to credit Alan Turing with the idea, showing in one of his papers on computability that any Turing machine could emulate any other Turing machine, given enough memory.

Though I don't suppose Turing foresaw the horror that is VmWare's Web based VM console viewer.
