I meant this in the context of using QEMU to run multiple simultaneous VMs for server virtualisation. I think it works OK(ish) for , say, running Windows on your bsd box....but i don't think you can compare it to something like Xen or VMWare or MS Virtual Server

probably a bit behind Qemu in speed would be BOCHS, though I think it is a bit more flexible wrt to the machines emulated.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
