I can vouch that PPRZ runs great on a virtual environment.  I have a 32 bit 
ubuntu machine as a guest under the 32bit Windows VMware host and it's just 
marvellous.  Assuming there are no weird issues with a 32 bit VM on a 64 bit 
host, you should be fine.

There is a small 'BUT'.  I don't normally use the virtual machine for actually 
flashing the PPRZ or running live comms via XBP protocol.  I only use it for 
development, Simulation and Log replays.

Just for completeness, I did just try flashing my PPRZ from VMWare and it 
worked just fine.  Not sure If I would try this for a live flight though and 
have not tested the USB XBEE devices or the initial bootloader.

Hope this helps,
