The emulator in the Sailfish SDK can be extracted, copied and modified
tol boot on other x86 devices but 'general' functionality will be
(very) limited: the purpose of the emulator is to let developers
test/debug their applications so it doesn't (yet) include any other
applications:- no browser, file manager etc.

Sailfish is built upon Nemo and Mer, and it is from these projects that
Sailfish inherits the cross-platform libraries/runtimes and the
emulator. Nemo already has most of the common apps and as such would be
a better fit if you were wanting to install it on an x86 netbook etc.

Hope that helps,
