Perhaps it's only fast under Windows with the "Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager" that is installable from the Android SDK Manager?


Answer to self: No, it started in less than two minutes for the first time on my 2.5GHz Penryn running Ubuntu 12.04.

It's a bit sluggish in operation though, no faster than the ARM image.

Does QEMU even support VT-X? Maybe it's only fast with that (and/or latest "nested paging" cruds or whatever)??
