It works for me and it works on a lot more platforms than KVM.

IMHO VirtualBox is _the_ userfriendly open source virtualisation solution.

Bingo. Not everyone is running a Linux based OS as a host and even if they were, at what point did options become a bad thing?

As much as I like VirtualBox, I still prefer Qemu as the universal lowest-common denominator. As far as Syllable goes we still target VMWare, simply because a lot of people who are interested tend to be running Windows, and the VMDK format is near universal these days.

VirtualBox needs to fix a few bugs in their emulation before it can surplant Qemu for x86 virtualisation/emulation.
