I used to test QEMU under Ubuntu. In 3 hours or so I even had an XP installed. Unfortunately, everything went 3-4 times slower that it did with VMWare, so it was just unusable.

about QEMU Jun 2011

Its a nice little emulator and has some nice features, but I recommend Virtual box over this program. I had too many problems and it was too confusing and difficult to get anything to work on this program.
