Just to add my thougths: my favourite is definitely virtualization, and mainly because of a few imho important points you forgot:

- ability to suspend & resume the virtual machine at any time
- ability to take system snapshots or similar
- ability to move the vm from one physical machine (say, your office station) to another one (e.g. your laptop)

... all of which apply to emulation as well.
