Re: [K12OSN] Virtual Machine Advice

I've tested VMware and Qemu, and found VMware to be much quicker.  I
tried and tried to love Qemu, due to its free software status, but
VMware just outperformed it.  

I also tried compiling Qemu w/ the kqemu accelerator.  This is supposed
to give performance near that of VMware.  I never succeeeded, but I'm sure that's my fault (since plenty of other people
have gotten it working).  kqemu was recently released under the GPL (it
was previously free of charge, but closed source).

I recently read some news that Debian has "adopted" OpenVZ as its
virtualization of choice.  I've never tried it, but perhaps it's worth
looking into.
