Interested to hear what you think of it. Iwas not so keen.

Can you give me a url for qemu as I would like to find out more.
It would be an ideal alternative for my students to use. (I am a lecturer at a college of further ed).
I use VMWare for demonstrations and for testing new OS's/configs and find it very good.It is to pricey for my students to get though and a lot would like to try versions of linux etc but do not want to alter there machine (usually a family machine and alterations are on pain of death!)
