It's bloody impressive, is what it is.
What is a shame is that accelerated qemu is a propiatery application...
On a /real/ box... as opposed to the whitebox dinosaurs my company (the
company I work for rather) thinks it's entertaining to have me work

very impressed... and ... I'm relishing showing off this new toy, to all
the other techies where I work.. who insist on inflicting crap distos on
