   Hi,


Hi,

I think simply not having a default
machine type (as already suggested elsewhere in this thread) is the
best way to deal with this.

I would absolutely hate this. One of the nice things about qemu has
always been that 'qemu disk.img' is enough to start a simple VM.

Well, not really.  There is no "qemu" any more, and there are other
defaults like default memory size which need tweaks, so the minimum
command line isn't that short any more and looks more like this:

     qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 1G disk.img


If the command line is the main concern, I don't think is
enough to be the reason not to switch the default.
We can work on achieving the same/close with Q35.

Thanks,
Marcel


cheers,
   Gerd
