daemonTools is a windows suite for dealing with CD/DVD images & creating a "virtual D:\"
It is not needed for linux as "everything is a file" so an iso image can be "mounted" with -loop

I've had problems with some game images when using loop mount. CDemu worked fine :)

Daemontools is a small set of useful utilities. They are mainly used for controlling processes, and maintaining logfiles.

On the other hand, demon tools are usually pitchforks, and sometimes whips.

There is a subtle difference between daemons and demons, though. Daemons are friendly helper spirits, demons do not exactly fall into this category ... :P At least this it how it was in classical mythology before people stopped differentiating between them. I just read Wikipedia article on demon and it is full of @#$%.
